    This is so sad for the innocent children to be terminated like nothing because of parents' selfishness. Jamani tuache ubinafsi, those children are little people and they deserve to live to become adults of tommorrow. Ukiwa na roho nyepesi ondoka wewe na huyo mpenzi wako na si kuua watoto wako.

    I am so pissed off with this couple I hope they are in fire in hell.

    Oh My Lord Protect the little angels. RIP little ones.

    US man 'shoots wife and children'

    The bodies were found in a house in a southern Los Angeles suburb
    A US man apparently distraught over job problems is thought to have shot dead his wife and five young children before turning the gun on himself.

    The bodies were found in a house in the south Los Angeles suburb of Wilmington.

    The as-yet unidentified man is believed to have killed his family after calling a local broadcaster and sending a fax about problems at work.

    The broadcaster then alerted the police, who found the dead family and a revolver lying near the man's body.

    Police could still smell the gunpowder residue when they found the bodies at around 0830 (1630 GMT) on Tuesday, a Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) spokeswoman said.

    Christmas Eve killings

    In the fax sent to KABC-TV, the man allegedly claimed he and his wife had been fired from jobs as medical technicians and she suggested they kill their children and themselves. We have no job and five children under eight years old with no place to go. So here we are

    fax from alleged gunman to local TV station

    "Why leave the children to a stranger?" the man wrote, according to KABC.

    "We have no job and five children under eight years old with no place to go. So here we are," the fax continued.

    "Oh lord, my God, is there no hope for a widow's son?" it concluded.

    In Southern California's third family mass murder in six months, police said the child victims were twin two-year old boys, twin five-year-old girls and an 8-year-old girl.

    Last month, nine people died when a gunman dressed as Father Christmas stormed into the home of his former in-laws on Christmas Eve and shot his ex-wife and her family before torching the house and killing himself.

    Two months earlier, a man shot his wife, three children and mother-in-law before killing himself, apparently because of financial troubles.

    Sio ubinafsi ni matatizo ya akili. Bahati mbaya hakugundulika. Inasikitisha sana. Duh!
    RIP, Amen.

    LOS ANGELES, California (CNN)

    A man apparently despondent about losing his job killed his wife and five children before turning the gun on himself, officials said Tuesday.

    A photo on Ervin Lupoe's Facebook page shows his wife and five children.
    1 of 2 The bodies of five children and two adults -- the children's mother and father -- were found Tuesday in a home in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Wilmington. Among the dead, authorities said, were an 8-year-old girl and two sets of twins -- 5-year-old girls and 2-year-old boys.

    Ervin Lupoe apparently called 911 and contacted a television station by fax before committing suicide, authorities said.

    "No words can describe this tragedy," said Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. "There's no way to comprehend this unspeakable act."

    Police were alerted by KABC-TV, who said the station had received a faxed letter and a call from an individual who was threatening suicide.

    Responding officers found all seven bodies inside the home, said Capt. William Hayes. Watch emergency crews arrive at the home ยป

    Nearly simultaneously with the KABC call, a man called 911 and reported coming home and finding his family dead, Hayes said. But, Deputy Police Chief Kenneth Garner said, the man told KABC he had killed them.

    A suicide note found at the scene "indicated a business dispute" between Lupoe and Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles Medical Center, Hayes said. In the faxed note to KABC, the man said he was despondent over an employment situation, police said.

    Kaiser Permanente said Lupoe and his wife, Ana, were both former employees of the medical center. Both had been terminated, Hayes said, with Lupoe's termination coming last week. It appears there were grounds for the termination, and it did not come as a result of layoffs, he said.

    In Lupoe's suicide note, he offered a detailed account of his and his wife's work circumstances, calling the family's situation a "tragic story." He ended it by saying, "So after a horrendous ordeal my wife felt it better to end our lives and why leave our children in someone's else's hands."

    "There is no reason to believe this is anything other than a murder-suicide," Lt. John Romero said. "There is no current threat to the community, no active search for a suspect."

    The father and the three girls were found in one upstairs room of the home, the mother and twin boys in another, police said. Deputy Police Chief Kenneth Garner described the scene as one of the most grisly police have encountered.

    Authorities did not release the names of the woman and children.

    "Unfortunately, this has become an all-too-common story in the last few months," Villaraigosa told reporters. He urged those who have lost jobs to take advantage of available assistance and resources, including mental health agencies.

    "Job centers, foreclosure counselors, and mental health professionals are ready to provide whatever services are necessary to get people back on their feet and to keep families afloat," the mayor said in a written statement.

    City Councilwoman Janice Hahn said, "No matter how desperate you are, no matter how frustrated you are, to think this was the only answer -- to take your whole family with you in death -- is just too much to understand."

    Kaiser Permanente said it is cooperating with the police investigation.

    "We are deeply saddened to hear of the deaths of the Lupoe family," the company said. "Our sympathies are with all their extended family and friends at this time. We are also providing resources and support to our employees who are affected by this tragedy."

    A dozen police officers and detectives remained at the scene Tuesday afternoon and several surrounding blocks were sealed off by police.

    Authorities said at an afternoon briefing that a community meeting would be held later in the day at a nearby church.
