Two California children and mother killed by father in murder/suicide

A 12-year old boy, Ramon Miranda Jr., his 10-year old sister, Rayna Miranda, and their mother, Silvia Miranda were shot to death by the father, Ramon Miranda, in their Fontana, California, home before the father turned the gun on himself.

The family's 16-year old son came home to discover the shooting.

From an article:
In a house where blood covered several rooms, [a 16-year old boy] found all four family members dead from gunshot wounds, police said Tuesday. 
Fontana police concluded it was most likely a murder suicide. 
Ramon Miranda, 38, apparently shot and killed 34-year-old Silvia Miranda and their children, 12-year-old Ramon Jr. and 10-year-old Rayna, before turning the gun on himself, according to police and the San Bernardino County coroner's office. 
The woman and the children had been shot several times and the man was shot once in the head, police spokeswoman Martha Guzman-Hurtado said. 
Investigators found a handgun. 
"Everything that has been confirmed so far indicates it could be a murder-suicide, but that has not been confirmed," Guzman-Hurtado said. "They are questioning other people before making that conclusion." 
However, investigators weren't looking for any suspects, she said.
