According to Sheriff Joseph Lopinto, the victims in the incident included a man and a woman who were the parents of a 14-year-old boy and a 20-year-old man.
The tragedy occurred at a home located on the 1100 block of Curtis Street near New Orleans.
The father made a 911 call in the morning around 7:50 am and hinted to the operator that he couldn’t go on living this way.
Upon arrival, the authorities found weapons and notes indicating that the deaths were a result of a murder-suicide.
Evidence suggests that the parents may have collaborated in shooting the children before taking their own lives.
