(AP) TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Police say two bodies found near a Tallahassee golf course were those of a woman who shot her young daughter and herself.

The Leon County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday identified them as 22-year-old Jenna Porter and 3-year-old Scarlett Porter.

Golfers found their bodies early Tuesday evening at Hilaman Golf Course. The golfers called 911 and stayed on the scene until deputies arrived.

The sheriff’s office says the mother and daughter lived in an apartment complex close to where their bodies were found. Investigators determined that Jenna Porter fired the shots based on evidence and witness statements.

They say the handgun used was found at the scene.

Preliminary autopsy results indicate both died from a single gunshot wound to the head.
