An Oregon man was found dead along with his two children inside an apartment Wednesday, officials said.
A relative reportedly found them inside the home in Beaverton and called 911 around 4:30 p.m., KATU reported. The woman presumed the family was dead.
The man was identified as 36-year-old Lakalo Kawika Enfield. His children were 8-year-old Lehua Elaysea Enfield and 6-year-old Lakalo Vergara Enfield.
A tactical team later confirmed that all three died. When officers first went inside the apartment to preserve everything around the scene, they heard a single gunshot and backed out.
“We thought it might be a homicide. At that point and time we backed out, we heard rustling in the side and we heard the slide of a gun and one additional gun shot from inside,” Baverton Police’s Jeremy Shaw told KATU.
Officials believe it to be a murder-suicide.
