Kenner, La (NBC33) — A mother and her three young children were found dead in their Kenner home Tuesday. At least three of the victims, including the mother, had gun shot wounds to the head. The woman’s husband discovered the bodies in an upstairs bedroom of their home on Louisiana State Drive. He called the police.
Kenner Police Chief Steve Caraway tells WDSU in New Orleans that they found a gun in the bedroom. It was on the floor near the bodies. They say it’s possible the mother, 29 year old Nadia Braxton killed her three children, 12 year old Nayah Peters, 1 year old Nayah Peters and 6 month old Nyla Peters, and then turned the gun on herself.
"It's a little early to tell, but we'll be able to figure that all out after interviewing the father and any other witnesses," Kenner Police Chief Steve Caraway said.
