ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Authorities say the two children and two adults found dead in their suburban Atlanta apartment were family members.

Johns Creek police on Tuesday identified the adults as 52-year-old Shivinder Singh Grover; and his wife, 47-year-old Damanjit Kaur Grover. The medical examiner said their sons, 5-year-old Gurtej Singh Grover; and 12-year-old Sartaj Singh Grover also died.

Johns Creek Police Chief Ed Densmore said authorities are investigating the deaths as a possible murder-suicide.

A co-worker of the slain woman called police and requested a welfare check when she didn’t show up for work, Taylor said. Police responded to the ground-floor apartment on Abbot’s Bridge Road around 11:30 a.m. and found the bodies.

City spokeswoman Rosemary Taylor said the slayings are the first recorded in Johns Creek since it was incorporated in 2006.
