Authorities say the bodies of a Burwell man and his nearly 3-year-old daughter were found at the scene of a shooting in their home Tuesday afternoon.
The bodies were discovered after officers broke out a window to gain access to the house.
Neighbors had reported their concerns after seeing no activity at the home.
The bodies were identified as 31-year-old Christopher Melling and Aimee Melling, who would have been 3 later this month.
Officials say that a firearm was found at the scene.
The Nebraska State Patrol says it is investigating the deaths as a murder-suicide.
The investigation continues and autopsies will be performed.
