A 44-year-old policeman from Brackenfell near Cape Town shot and killed his three children before turning the gun on himself on Saturday.
On arrival at the scene, police were told by the man's wife that her husband had fired several shots at the three children inside the house.
The three children aged between one and 16 years were killed and the man seriously wounded himself late last night.
According to IOL, Inspector Randall Stoffels said that the motive for the shooting cannot be confirmed, but it forms part of our investigation.
