SAN DIEGO (CBS) — Another family murder-suicide has claimed the lives of two teens and a father in San Diego.

A Chula Vista man shot and killed his two sons, 13 and 15, set his home on fire, and then turned the gun on himself, police said Tuesday.

KNX 1070’s Tom Reopelle reports several suicide notes were recovered inside the house, but investigators said that a motive has not yet been determined.

Police said the father worked as a local attorney.

The shooting marks the county’s third family murder-suicide in the past month, with two in Chula Vista and one in San Diego.

Six of the total victims have been children under the age of 16.

    How horrifying for a child to see his own father point a gun at him and SHOOT. That being the last image he see’s before he dies. May there be a special place in hell for those that kill their own. My condolences to those that are left, may they find some kind of peace in the wake of this insanity

    Either pull yourself together and work through your troubles, or take your OWN life instead taking others with you. Stop killing your innocent kids for your own selfish reasons. So tired of hearing about this!!!!!

    Suicide is the best and quickest way to end ALL pain and or suffering. Why is it so hard for people to understand that some people DO NOT want to get help nor go to therapy? Whatever pain or suffering this guy was going through is now totally gone. It’s sad that he killed the children he created but as we all know…life is not fare.

    Totally Unacceptable!!!1If you look at other people’s lives,those who are in and out of the hospital,people who lost their homes,people who are sick of cancer,people in pain…..they don’t kill themselves….they fight till the end…why do healthy people have to kill themselves….and so selfish…they have to take their kids……..LEAVE YOUR CHILDREN ALONE!!! There are foster homes and adoption agencies to take care of them…….Leave them alone!!!……..Maybe those people just lack the FAITH and Prayers….let God help……..clear your mind.
