SPANAWAY, Wash. — Authorities say a U.S. Airman in Washington state fatally shot his two young children and their mother before killing himself.

The children included a boy and a girl and both were under age 5.
The sheriff's office said the man was a member of the U.S. Air Force, who was stationed at nearby Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
Authorities are investigating.
