Authorities say they suspect a mother shot and killed her three young daughters before killing herself outside her estranged boyfriend's home in rural eastern Missouri.

Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer says all four were found shot in the head early Thursday at a home near De Soto, about 45 miles south of St. Louis. The victims' names weren't immediately released.
