WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Police are investigating the fatal shootings of four family members found dead inside their Iowa home over the weekend.
The deaths were discovered by another family member around midmorning Saturday. Investigators are still working to determine exactly what happened, but West Des Moines police Sgt. Dan Wade said there is no threat to the community after this tragedy.
The victims were identified at 44-year-old Lavanya Sunkara, 41-year-old Chandrasekhar, a 15--year-old boy and a 10-year-old boy. The Des Moines Register reports the family had owned the home where the shooting happened since March.
Police said four other family members - two adults and two children - were staying in the home as guests, and they discovered the victims.
