TOOMSUBA (AP) — Authorities say a mother, her two adult daughters and a grandson were killed at a home in eastern Mississippi.

Lauderdale County Chief Sheriff’s Deputy Ward Calhoun says authorities are questioning people, but have no suspects yet in the shooting deaths. Authorities believe the killings in the Toomsuba community happened sometime Monday night.

Calhoun identified the slain as 65-year-old Edna Durr and her daughters, Tomecca Pickett, 42, and Kiearra Durr, 27. Also killed was Pickett’s 5-year-old son, Owen Pickett. Kierra Durr’s 3-year-old daughter was not shot and survived the attack.
