FOUR family members found dead in front of a burning house were identified Friday after their brutal murder.
According to police, two people were found with gunshot wounds in the driveway of the house, while a third was in the nearby street.
Officials moved the victims away from the crime scene in Oak Forest, Illinois, and took them to the hospital, but they were all pronounced dead.
Another person, believed to be the gunman, was found dead in the house after the flames were extinguished.
The suspected gunman was identified as Carlos Gomez, 44, late Friday.
The three victims were identified as Lupe Gomez, 43; Emilio Rodriguez, 20; and Briana Rodriguez, 22.
The horrifying crime was captured by the suspect’s neighbor’s Ring camera, which shows an unidentified man shooting three people, ABC7 reports.
According to the outlet, after the shooting, the man was seen running into the house and barricading himself before a massive fire broke out.
Video of the scene showed flames shooting through the roof, with heavy black smoke billowing from the house.
Once the fire was under control, we saw police officers in tactical gear and firefighters enter the badly damaged home.
Neighbors recalled hearing dozens of shots around 6:30 a.m.
A woman who lives in the area told WGN-TV that she saw several people living in the house in the driveway and street.
The witness told the outlet that one of the girls living in the house where the fire broke out banged on her door and asked to call 911, claiming that “her father shot her mother and two brothers”.
The woman said there were six people living in the house, a mother, a father and their four children
“There is some blood on the street, in the dead end street. According to what we were told, the woman tried to get out of the house and was shot,” neighbors Cheryl and Cody Wilson told ETN 5 DC.
In December 2016, Oak Forest police were called to the home, resulting in the arrest of a 44-year-old man charged with “household battery” and “criminal damage to property,” according to Cook County court records.
A protection order was issued to the woman – the victim – but she was evicted nine days later and the domestic violence charges were dropped.
The suspect, a man, had a valid firearms owner’s ID at the time of his arrest and his firearms were returned to him.
It is unknown if the man still had a valid FOID card at the time of this recent incident.
Police recovered a weapon from the home on Friday.
