A 14-year-old boy and a 17-year-old boy were killed during a shooting in Hawthorne Monday afternoon.

The shooting is under investigation as a murder-suicide, Alachua County Sheriff’s spokesperson Sgt. Frank Kinsey said. 

Alachua County Sheriff's office received a frantic call at about 4:35 p.m. from the father of the boys about a shooting at 16331 SE County Road 2082, Kinsey said.

A 45-year-old female, who law enforcement believes is the mother of the two males, also had a gunshot wound and was transported to the hospital with critical injuries, Kinsey said.  

ACSO is not searching for additional suspects and there is no threat to the public, he said. 

This is a developing story. Please check back for updates.
