SAN FRANCISCO — Five members of a family were found dead inside a home near San Francisco's City College in a possible murder-suicide, police said Friday.
A woman with access to the house discovered three of the bodies and called police shortly before 8 a.m., according to police spokeswoman Cmdr. Lyn Tomioka. When officers arrived, they found a total of five dead adults three women and two men.
At least two of the victims were shot, but investigators were still looking into the cause of death for the others, Tomioka said.
The spokeswoman stopped short of confirming it was a murder-suicide but said no suspects were being sought outside the home.
"We do not believe we have a suspect at large," she said. "We do believe at this stage that this incident is specific to this address."
Police closed off the street around the orange, two-story home in the Ingleside District, a quiet, middle-class neighborhood in southern San Francisco, and were interviewing neighbors.
The woman first came upon the carnage when she found one man shot to death in the foyer by the front door, Police Chief Greg Suhr said. She then saw a man and a woman dead in the garage before running out and calling police, he said.
Police later found two more female victims in the back of the home, Suhr said.
Investigators believe all of the victims lived in the house.
