West Sacramento police Sgt. Roger Kinney says Hodges killed the children following a domestic violence altercation with his wife.

Around 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 12, police received a domestic violence call from a woman at West Sacramento's Timbers Apartments, ABC 10 reported.

On the way to the apartment, they got a second call, saying that the children in the apartment were possibly dead.

When police responded, they discovered the three children and immediately began to perform life-saving measures.

Police haven't released the ages of the victims, but resident Irene Aiello said the two older children were 11 and 9, and a third child was born in January.

Police are actively searching for a male suspect. Authorities said Hodges, who is the children's father, was detained without incident.

Police activity will be ongoing in the area through the night and into the morning hours.

Hodges is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday (18 September), Kinney said. "The officers are absolutely impacted, along with the firefighters, and certainly the family, the neighbours-this call is going to have quite a bit of emotion. 'This [investigation] is going to take not hours, not days, it's going to take a long time a long time to come to grips with what happened there".

She said the grandparents have yet to speak to Hodges or his wife.

He continued: "It's horrific and it's very hard to deal with. (Their apartment is) so quiet", neighbor Theresa Bustamante told KCRA.

According to The Sun UK, Robert Hodges killed the youngsters in their West Sacramento, California home at around midnight last Thursday, in what cops described as a "horrific" incident of domestic violence.

"Obviously, she's traumatized, and it's going to take some time to find out what's going on", he said. The school district also brought in counselors and support personnel to help teachers and students during this time of grief.

The slayings left his relatives and neighbors pondering what might have gone wrong in a family they said seemed happy, with no sign of turmoil.

Longtime friends of Robert Hodges are just as stunned and saddened by all that's happened.

That said, it is understood two of the murdered children attended nearby Southport Elementary School.
