5 found dead in Massachusetts home identified”

Five people, including three children, have been shot and killed in an apparent murder-suicide at an apartment complex in MA, prosecutors say.

The scene was discovered at about 7:30 a.m. on Monday when a relative went to the home in Abington, a town about 17 miles (27 km) southeast of Boston, to take the children to school.

"This is an incredibly bad event and actually, you know, it is what it is, it's a crime". They then found four additional bodies: an 11-year-old girl, 9-year-old twins (a boy and a girl), and a 43-year-old man.

"This appears to be an isolated incident", Cruz said.

He said there is no threat to the public but would not elaborate further on what happened, saying it's still under investigation.

Abington police Chief David Majenski said there was no history of domestic issues with the family.

Police were said to have found the Deirdre's body first, in the downstairs area of the home, before finding the three children and their father, Joseph's body.

"When something unimaginable like this happens there's always going to be more questions than answers", Cruz said. The medical examiner will determine exactly what time the five died, as well as the cause and manner of their deaths. "It's just a horrific event that nobody should ever really see".

The district attorney's office and police department did not release the name of the family, but the Abington School District released a statement on the deaths of the parents and the three children, who were students in the district.

Due to the students" access to information with cellphones, media and social media, at the high school and middle school the faculty and staff informed the students in small groups that, "We are heartbroken to share with you that the Zaccardi Family, an Abington family, died unexpectedly last night.

The school district said it would also have counselors on hand to offer support to students and other members of the school community. This was an unexpected event, which deeply saddens all of us.

"We need to make sure that we help the people that we can help", Cruz said.

On Monday afternoon, the DA's office released a statement from family members of the victims in the shooting.

Relatives of the family are asking for privacy as they grieve an "unfathomable" loss.
