Four Found Dead in Calif. in Apparent Murder-Suicide

Two children and two adults


Two adults and two children believed to be family members were found shot to death in a Southern California home in what police are investigating as a suspected triple murder and suicide, police said on Tuesday.

Police were called to the home in Fontana, about 50 miles east of Los Angeles, by a 16-year-old boy who is apparently related to the victims and discovered the crime scene when he went to the house on Monday night, Fontana police Sergeant Doug Imhof said.

Imhof said the teenager was not a suspect.

In the house, police found the bodies of a man and a woman, each about 35 to 40 years old, and a boy about 10 years old and a girl roughly 12, Imhof said.
