The tragic incident unfolded in Alabama.

Calhoun County Coroner Pat Brown said 70-year-old Brenda Williamon, Alicia Williamon (44) and Jeannie Williamon (43) were found dead inside their home.

He said the mother, Brenda, is believed to have shot her daughters before killing herself late Sunday night.
