SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) - A coroner’s official has identified three of four people shot to death inside a Southern California home in what investigators believe was a murder-suicide involving family members.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies found the bodies at the house in Santa Clarita Friday after getting a call from someone concerned about the family.

Lt. Rodney Moore said the husband and wife, their college-age daughter and pre-teen son were found shot to death in what appears to be a murder-suicide carried out by the man. Police are not looking for any suspects.

The coroner’s office Sunday identified three of the deceased as 47-year-old Amy Suzanne Birnkrant, 20-year-old Drew Taylor Birnkrant and 11-year-old Sean Birnkrant.

KCBS-TV reports officials have withheld the identity of the fourth individual, pending notification of next of kin.
