Police: 5 bodies found in San Francisco home in apparent murder-suicide

SAN FRANCISCO -- Five members of a family -- three women and two men -- were found dead in a home in San Francisco in an apparent murder-suicide, police said.

At least two of the victims were shot, but investigators were still looking into the cause of death for the others, police spokeswoman Cmdr. Lyn Tomioka told The Associated Press.

The bodies were found in an orange, two-story home in the first block of Howth Street, NBCBayArea.com reported. The area is near San Francisco's City College. Police said the public is not in any danger.


Police Chief Greg Suhr said a family member walked into the house shortly before 8 a.m. and discovered the bodies, SFGate.com reported. The dead were described as members of one family.

Suhr told SFGate.com that the female family member found one man shot to death in the foyer by the front door, found a man and a woman dead in the garage, then ran out and called police. Police later found two more female victims in the back of the home, Suhr said.

Police said it was unclear who fired the shots, but they were not looking for any suspects at large.
