A woman has killed herself and her three children on Wednesday afternoon.
Reports say the 40-year-old had used her husband’s 9mm pistol, which was found on the scene of the incident.
Her husband had called police after the house, located in Sallies village, near Gauteng, South Africa, was burning.
He said he had found remains of the children, aged 10, 17 and 19, and the woman in the house.
Spokesperson Capt Pearl van Staad said investigation was ongoing.
