HOUSTON (AP) — Sheriff's officials have identified the married couple fatally shot last week along with their two children in their suburban Houston home.

Maoye Sun and his wife Mei Xie were shot Jan. 30 in Cypress, northwest of Houston. The family immigrated from China and authorities have said the release of their names was delayed as they worked to first notify relatives there.

Harris County sheriff's officials said Thursday they're awaiting confirmation through dental records before identifying the two boys. But the Houston Chronicle reports the Cypress-Fairbanks school district has identified the children as 9-year-old Timothy Xie Sun and 7-year-old Titus Xiao Sun.

Authorities have not yet determined a motive for the slayings nor identified any suspects. All four were shot in the head.
