live in long beach township, ted greenberg, nbc 10 news. breaking news now. we want to take you to that press conference on the tragic shooting in tabernacle, new jersey. >> i am captain steven jones of the new jersey state police. we'd like to provide an outline of what we now know regarding the tragedy that occurred yesterday in tabor knackal. 9:15 yesterday morning dispatch received a 911 call describing a shooting at 39 holly park drive in tabernacle.ç when troopers arrived there, they found four people had been shot, three of them were children and tragically, two of them were dead at the scene. today, the burlington county medical examiner's office was able to provide additional information through an autopsy and they have identified the two children that have died at the scene as nicholas harrimna and
nadia harriman, 8 years old an their brother, alexander is 11 years old, is critically injured along with the mother of all three children. her name is jeannine lepage. all pay long state police detectives were out there at the scene interviewing people and collecting evidence at this point that investigation has miles to go before it's complete. we believe with fair confidence that we know who committed this shooting and in addition to that, we know how that shooting was done. to allay public fears at this point, so people don't believe there's any reason to fear in that neighborhood, we'd like to provide substantial details. i'd like to bring up captain jeff noble. >> yesterday, when we provided a press briefing, we identified
the four victims of the tragic shooting from yesterday. today we'd like to update that. there are three victims who were shot and one suspect who was shot. the victims are the children of the suspect who has been identified as the mother of the victims, jeannine lepage. detectives have been working exhaustive hours throughout last night, throughout today. the findings at this point remain preliminary, as additional efforts are ongoing which include extensive forensic testing. both of the decedents were examined this morning by the burlington county medical examiner's office. both of their manners of death have been determined to be homicide. after consult with the burlington county prosecutor's office, we are prepared to release the following time line

it's an older weapon. and the weapon itself to the best of our investigation, right now, reveals that the weapon was owned by -- originally purchased by a person who was in the family a long time ago. we're continuing to trace the origin of that weapon. but i want to be clear that that weapon was not purchased by ms. lepage any time recently. the weapon was found in very close proximity to the mother, jeannine lepage. her condition as well remains extremely critical at cooper hospital. >> all right. the station commander is going to give us an update about what's going on at the scene. >> okay. very briefly, as you know from yesterday's press conference, the home is shared by other
family members. there's a total of nine people that do live there. as far as the crime scene, we're through with the home. it's wrapped up. the road is completely open and that house is now secured as any other residence would be secured. we've been informed that the additional family members that do live there are temporarily -- >> you're listening to an update from the new jersey state police on this tragic situation that unfolded yesterday in tabernacle, new jersey. they believe this was a double murder, attempted suicide. the two children killed, they allege killed by their own mother who lies in critical condition right now at cooper hospital with another one of her children, a 14-year-old, also in extremely critical condition. count on us to update this story as developments continue to unfold. that's the latest on this attempted -- this double murder and attempted suicide, according to new jersey state police.
