City Police Sergeant Dan Wade said, "A phone call was received at 10 am (according to local time) Saturday morning about a problem at a house on 65th Street between Ashworth Road and Aspen Drive. When our units reached the residence, we found four dead bodies in the bloodstream with bullet wounds. The deceased have been identified as Chandrashekhar Sunkara (44), Lavanya Sunkara (41) and two boys aged 15 and 10. It is not yet clear how the incident took place. One of their relatives, who came home, ran outside for help and found a passerby in the neighbourhood, who alerted the police.”
