Murder-Suicide Eyed in Deaths of Five in Arizona Home

Tucson, Arizona, police said Wednesday that the deaths of five family members — the youngest of whom was 17 — were the result of a murder-suicide.

Police believe Christopher Carrillo, 25, shot and killed his four family members before turning the gun on himself at a southern Tucson home sometime before an acquaintance discovered the grisly scene just before 6 p.m. local time Tuesday (8 p.m. ET).

The victims were identified as Raul Carrillo, 58; Karen Saari, 53; Erick Carrillo, 32; and Isela Rodriguez, 17, Tucson police said in a statement Wednesday.

The bodies were discovered after an acquaintance went to visit the home and called police after finding a dead man when he opened the door, police said. Officers went to the home and found the rest of the bodies inside, all with obvious gunshot wounds, police said. Police have not released a motive.
