Virginia Police Find Six Family Members Dead In Apparent Murder-Suicide

Six people are dead in what appears to be a murder-suicide in Chesapeake, Virginia, according to the Epoch Times.

Police said officers headed to the home in question on Wednesday afternoon for a welfare check when they found a person dead. After heading to another home about one block away, they came across “an armed person barricaded inside.”

Police entered the home after negotiating with the armed individual for some time. After entering the home, they apparently found five people dead, including the armed person.

The names of the individuals have not been released.

Officials believe all the victims were related, and that the armed individual killed everyone else before police arrived. Story developing.

        Six people are dead and you’re more concerned about making a comment about my comment? Wow. I’m sorry these people died, my heart goes out to their families but in all honesty, the article makes zero sense. It’s was poorly slapped together, not much respect for the story or the people involved.
