LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A mother killed her two children Thursday, then went to the nearby college she attended and brandished a gun before handing the weapon to a health counselor, police said.

The threat at the University of Louisville ended with no injuries about half an hour after it began, but police who were then asked by school officials to check on the children found them dead with gunshot wounds.

Gail Lynn Coontz, 37, is charged with killing 14-year-old Greg Coontz and 10-year-old Nikki Coontz, said Louisville police officer Phil Russell.
