Monroe Police are investigating what's described as a murder-suicide involving a mother and her children at an apartment complex in Monroe in northeast Louisiana.

According to ABC affiliate KNOE 8, police were dispatched to a shooting at Parkview Apartment Complex around 8:00 p.m. Thursday.

Witnesses have told detectives a woman shot some of her children and then shot herself. Few other details have been released. But neighbors have reported the woman suffered from a mental illness and bought the guns just a few days before last night's shooting.

Police are not yet saying how many people were shot or their names and ages.
