7 Dead in Apparent Murder-Suicide at L.A. Home

Seven bodies were discovered in a Los Angeles home early Tuesday morning, victims of an apparent murder-suicide.

According to authorities, the father, who fatally shot his wife, five children and himself in the Wilmington section of Los Angeles, forwarded a note to KABC-TV noting that the couple had just been fired from a medical center and that the shootings were planned.

The man claimed that prior to the firing, an administrator told the couple they should not have come to work and told them, "You should have blown your brains out," KABC-TV reported.

The note went on to say that the husband and wife worked as medical technicians at Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles Medical Center.

Police reported that the victims included two sets of twins and an 8-year-old girl.
