4 Dead — Including 2 Toddlers — In Apparent Fresno Murder-Suicide

FRESNO  (AP) — Police in California’s Central Valley say two adults and two children are dead after an apparent murder-suicide, and a fifth person is hospitalized in critical condition.

The Fresno Bee reports that when police were called to investigate a disturbance at a Fresno apartment shortly before 7 a.m. Sunday, they found a man outside the residence suffering from a stab wound.

Capt. Dennis Bridges tells the newspaper that officers then heard a single gunshot. When they went inside the apartment, they found a woman believed to be in her 20s with a self-inflicted gunshot wound and a man in his 20s or 30s dead of a gunshot wound.

Two children — an 18-month-old and a 3-year-old — also died from gunshot wounds.

The man suffering from the stab wound was taken to a local hospital, where he is reported to be in critical condition.

Police didn’t immediately return calls from The Associated Press seeking additional information.

    Why kill the kids? If you want to end your own miserable life, go ahead. No loss. But young, innocent children. The ultimate act of cowardice.
