4 dead, including boy, in Santa Clarita murder-suicide

A man, two women and a boy were found shot to death Friday morning in a home in Santa Clarita in what authorities are calling a murder-suicide.

The bodies were discovered about 7 a.m. on Startree Lane, according to the sheriff's department.

Officials say the deceased include a husband and wife and their daughter who they believe was in her early 20s and a son they believe was around 11-years-old. Authorities believe the father shot the family and then shot himself.

Authorities discovered the bodies after being sent to the home on a request to perform a welfare check, and investigators are not looking for any suspects in the case.

Anyone with information on the case was urged to call the Sheriff's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
