Armani Kelley, 8, and Anijah Kelley, 4, were taken from a home in the South Collinwood neighborhood by their mother, Arriel Bryant, 28, according to police.
Police say they were called to the home on the 900 block of Alhambra Road at about 8:15 p.m. There they found Richard Kelley, 30, inside the home dead of multiple gunshot wounds.
Richard Kelley is the children's father.
Kelley and Bryant reportedly got into an argument and police believe Bryant shot him before leaving with the children in a vehicle.
The vehicle was later found in an undisclosed location but Bryant and the children were not inside.
Bryant is 5-foot-3, 140 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Armani is 4-feet, 60 pounds and has brown eyes and brown hair, while Anijah is about 3 feet tall, 40 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.
Police are asking for anyone with information to call 911.
Update: Bryant was arrested Tuesday morning, and her children were found safe.
