The children were not in car seats.

Deputies also found a security officer’s gun belt, belonging to the victim’s boyfriend, on the floor of the front passenger seat. 

The 40-caliber firearm was found on the floor of the back seat behind the driver’s seat.

Sheriff’s detectives are conducting the investigation.
