Authorities say a man with a rifle has killed his two young daughters and then shot himself to death at an upstate New York campground, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Warren County Sheriff Bud York says the girls may have been sleeping when 29-year-old Hilton resident Adam Parcells shot them Monday (Sept. 5).

The family had been staying in a tent at the 168-acre Adirondack Camping Village, 50 miles north of Albany near the village of Lake George.

The bodies were found today, four days after 10-year-old Noel Parcells' mother reported her missing. Also killed was 3-year-old Mia Parcells.

The sheriff says the girls were Adam Parcells' children by different mothers. He says nobody reported hearing the shootings, which happened after a rainy day that saw many people leave the popular summertime tourist destination at the end of the Labor Day weekend.
