Murder/Suicide Claims 7 Lives in Wilmington
Tragedy unfolded today on a quiet street in a residential area of Wilmington. A man opened fire and killed his wife, their five children, then turned the gun on himself after the man and his wife were let go from their jobs at a West Los Angeles hospital. A letter from the man claimed he and his wife made a suicide pact after they lost their jobs. A sad commentary on the times we are living in.An emotional LA councilwoman Janice Hahn is comforted after addressing the media. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and council member Janice Hahn were at the scene along with numerous LAPD and coroner officials.
