"Couple and their 3 children found dead in Maryland home"

According to The Los Angeles Times, "A father, 34, killed his wife and their three young children before fatally shooting himself in a northwest Maryland home," on Saturday.

Christopher Alan Wood killed himself after fatally shooting his wife, Francis Bilotti Wood, 33, and their children.

Their sons were ages 5 and 4, and their daughter was 2-years-old. The boys were found in their beds, the girl was found in the master bedroom with Francis and Christopher's body was at the foot of his bed.

The bodies were discovered around 9 a.m. Saturday, by a relative who immediately notified police.

The children had "traumatic cuts" in addition to the gunshot wounds.

"Investigators also found a shotgun and other items they believed were used to cut the victims," the LA Times reported.

"I'm still sick to my stomach," neighbor Peggy Lawrence said. "Makes you realize you never know what's going on in people's lives."
