While en route, police received another call that three children inside the home may have been killed.
According to KCRA, emergency responders performed life-saving measures on the children, but all three were pronounced dead at the scene.
He said she did not witness Hodges kill the children as it was initially reported.
Neighbours called 911 to report a domestic violence incident, and as police were on the way to the apartment, someone called again to report the children were possibly dead, he said. It's horrific, and it's very hard to deal with.
"Obviously, she's traumatized, and it's going to take some time to find out what's going on", Kinney said of the mother.
A community vigil is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14, at Southport Elementary School, 2747 Linden Road.
The way in which the children were killed has not been given, nor have the children's ages. She said there were no signs of trouble or fighting before Wednesday night. I was in my apartment all the time. "Together, we grieve this loss", the release continued. He had fled the scene by the time they arrived.
