Police: Man Kills Wife, 5 Children, Himself

Los Angeles police say a man distraught over his job situation killed his wife and five children before committing suicide at their home. The victims include two sets of twins.

Officers responding to a report of a shooting went to a home in the Wilmington area of Los Angeles Tuesday morning after getting a report of shots fired.

Deputy Chief Kenneth Garner says they found the bodies of a man, a woman, an 8-year-old girl, two 5-year-old twin girls and a set of twin 2-year-old boys.

Garner says the man had been despondent over an unspecified job situation.
