Two teenage boys were killed in an incident in Sheffield, with four other children including a baby in hospital.
South Yorkshire Police have arrested a man and a woman and launched a murder investigation after the bodies were found in the Shiregreen area of the city yesterday morning.
The pair – a man aged 37 and a woman aged 34 – are in police custody after being arrested on suspicion of murder.
Teenagers in school uniform were seen sobbing in the street, with their parents lost for words as the community comes to terms with the shocking deaths.
One girl brought a large red love heart-shaped balloon which was tied to the fence next to the house on Gregg House Road by a police officer.
“We must all look after each other”
Others brought flowers, as two teen girls hugged watching forensics teams going in and out of the building.
Just after 7.30am on Friday, cops descended on a semi-detached house, with dozens of police cars and ambulances scrambled.
An air ambulance landed on the grounds of a local primary school just 100m away, reported Manchester Evening News.
Inside the house, two lads – aged just 13 and 14 – were found with serious injuries and were rushed to hospital where they later died.
Four other children – aged seven months, three, 10 and 11 – were also taken to hospital where they are conscious, police said.
The kids can’t be named for legal reasons and police have given no indication as to what happened inside the house.
They said there hadn’t been a shooting — which some early rumours had claimed.
Speaking at the scene, Superintendent Paul McCurry said the children were being given “the necessary care that they need”.
He added: “They will be in hospital for certainly the next few hours.”
Post-mortem exams will be carried out by the end of Saturday.
In a statement, the boys’ school said: “It is with great sadness that we can confirm that two of our students died in tragic circumstances on Friday morning.
Offering a message to other pupils, the statement went on: “We must all look after each other”.
