MEMPHIS - Six people, including two children, were found dead inside a Memphis home Monday.

The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported that three other children in the home were taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Police are investigating the incident, which is being called one of the worst mass killings in Tennessee in more than 15 years.

"We just don't know the motive or cause of death, but we do have four adults and two children (dead)," Memphis police Lt. Jerry Guin was quoted as saying.

Police responded to the scene after a relative knocked on the door, but nobody answered, the newspaper reported.

The relative called police, who discovered the killings after entering the home.
