Mississippi authorities confirmed Wednesday that four people are dead after a small plane crashed into a home earlier in the week. 

Hattiesburg Police Department Public Information Officer Ryan Moore said Wednesday that authorities were called to the scene around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The Federal Aviation Administration was called to investigate the cause of the crash, The Associated Press reported.

“A twin-engine Mitsubishi MU-2B-60 crashed into a house in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, at 11:22 p.m. local time Tuesday. Three people were aboard,” a FAA spokeswoman said in an email to The Hill.

“The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued an Alert Notice (ALNOT) on May 4 to public safety agencies to alert them about the missing aircraft. The flight departed Wichita Falls Regional Airport in Wichita Falls, Texas. The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate.”
