The daughter of a Minnesota tribal police chief allegedly killed her two kids before taking her own life, officials said.

said 28-year-old Emma LaRoque and her two children were discovered dead Monday afternoon at their home in Ogema, which is about 230 miles northwest of Green Bay, Vally News Live reported.

LaRoque fatally shot herself and her two children — identified as 9-year-old Shane Woods and 4-year-old Frederick York – died from “homicidal violence,” according to authorities.

“Based on the preliminary investigation, it is believed there is no threat to the public,” the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said in a statement.

LaRoque’s father leads the White Earth tribal police, serving as safety director, according to the Star Tribune.

The reservation was rocked by the news of the murder-suicide. Members said they were “absolutely devastated because things like this don’t happen to women like LaRoque,” according to Valley News Live.

A healing ceremony was held Wednesday at White Earth Community Center to mourn the deaths.
