PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities in Florida say a man killed his wife and her boyfriend before fatally shooting himself.

Port St. Lucie police officers tell local media that the man called dispatchers late Saturday to say he had fatally shot his wife and her boyfriend, and that there were two children inside the home.

When police officers arrived at the home, they found the man dead from an apparent gunshot wound on the back patio of the house.

Port St. Lucie police officers say the children were asleep when they found them.

The children were placed in the care of the Department of Children and Families.
