Mother and Four Children Found Dead in Iowa City Home

By  | 

Iowa City, Iowa (AP) Police in Iowa City, Iowa, have found the bodies of a woman and four children in a house. Police aren't saying how they died, but media reports said they had been shot.

Police are now looking for the man who lived there, and the family's van. They point out that there's been a single-vehicle, fatal crash about nine miles away, possibly involving the van. The vehicle was on fire, so officers couldn't immediately identify it or the occupant who died.

According to court records, the man who lived at the house was indicted last month on federal charges of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the bank where he worked.

Students and faculty at the University of Iowa have received text and telephone messages warning that there is an active shooter in the Iowa City area.
