According to the LA Times neighbors reported seeing a woman running from the house on Sunday night yelling “My babies are gone.”

Homicide detectives were still at the scene Monday morning but have not released the names of the victims, or a motive for the shootings.

I cannot imagine what the mother is going through right now and my heart goes out to her.

I wish her all the help and support during this horrific time and that justice is properly served. Please share.
