FONTANA – Four bodies, including two children, were discovered on Monday night, each victims of a shooting that police said appears to have been a murder-suicide. Police needed to obtain a search warrant before entering a home on the 7300 block of Palmetto Ave.

Various news reports, including a corresponding police announcement, stated that the bodies were found in large amounts of blood. A single gunshot wound to the a dead man inside the home gave police an early reason to suspect it was a murder-suicide.

Two children, identified as 10-year-old girl Rayna Miranda and 12-year-old boy Ramon Miranda Jr., were discovered just after 8:30 p.m. A Fontana spokeswoman confirmed the deaths of the children, along with that of 34-year-old Silvia Miranda. Police had been notified by a 16-year-old relative who did not live at the home, later identified as Silvia’s son from another marriage, who reported that family members were injured or had been killed in the home. Police said there had also been reports from neighbors of arguing in the house earlier that day.

The incident attracted the attention of Los Angeles television crews, who then staked out spots along the street. Fontana police spokeswoman Martha Guzman-Hurtado confirmed that three victims had suffered from multiple gunshot wounds. “The male,” she said, “had one gunshot wound to the head.”

The male has been identified by police as 38-year-old Ramon Miranda. There have been no announcement of any additional suspects, said Sgt. Doug Imhoff. “There’s some amounts of blood,” he said, “in different areas of the house. There are a couple of weapons that have been seen by our detectives.”
