Here we are again, another father, despondent over  his job situation…kills his wife, 8 year old girl, twin 5 year old girls and twin 2 year old boys…oh, and himself.  They will probably say he was a nice guy too.

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) — The bodies of five children and two adults were found Tuesday in a home in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Wilmington, and authorities are investigating the case as a murder-suicide, CNN affiliate KABC and the Los Angeles Times reported.

Authorities responding to a call of a shooting found multiple family members inside the home shot to death, Los Angeles police Officer Sam Park told CNN. He said the investigation was ongoing, and would not say how many family members were inside or divulge their ages.

All the children were under the age of 10, according to the Los Angeles Times. They and their mother were fatally shot inside the home, apparently by the children’s father, police told the newspaper. The man is believed to have committed suicide after calling a news media outlet. The outlet — which was not named — notified police, the newspaper said.
