(CBS/AP) TUCSON, Ariz. - Perla Morales, an Arizona mother, is in jail after authorities say she fatally shot her 17-month-old son and 4-year-old daughter before injuring herself during a Saturday night shooting attack.
Tucson police declined to release the suspected motive behind the shooting and did not specify how Morales, 25, injured herself.

Investigators said 17-month-old Richard Rosovich Jr. died at his home while 4-year-old Emma Rosovich was pronounced dead shortly after at a hospital.

Morales was booked on two counts of first-degree murder after being released from a hospital where she was treated for her injuries.
