PUEBLO WEST, Colo. (AP) — Authorities are investigating after a mother and daughter were found dead with gunshot wounds in their southern Colorado home.

The bodies of 42-year-old Jennifer Hamula and 10-year-old Stephie Hamula were found Monday after deputies conducted a welfare check at the home.

Two dogs also were found dead inside. Both appeared to be shot.

The Gazette reports that Hamula had worked as a state corrections officer for about 20 years.

The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office says investigators don’t believe there is a threat to others in the community.
