Modesto, CA – A woman and two children were found deceased following an assault call in northwest Modesto Saturday.

Just after 7:00 p.m. yesterday, officers were called to the 1600 block of Bay Meadows Drive to investigate an assault. When officers arrived they found a 30-year-old woman and two boys, ages 9 and 4, deceased inside the home.

A 28-year-old man was located in front of the residence with what appeared to be self-inflicted injuries. He was taken to a local hospital where he remains while receiving treatment.
