Two Florida teens killed by mother in murder/suicide

Victims Alexander Berman, 16, and Jacqueline Berman, 15,
with the shooter and mother, Jennifer Berman

Jennifer Berman was facing financial problems, in West Palm Beach, Florida.  So she decided to arm herself and shot her two children before killing herself in her home.

16-year-old Alexander Berman and 15-year-old Jacqueline Berman both died from their wounds.

From an article:
The victims were identified as Jennifer Berman, who owned the home, and her children, 16-year-old Alexander Berman and 15-year-old Jacqueline Berman. Police went to the residence after being called by Jennifer Berman’s ex-husband, Richard Berman, just after 8 a.m. local time Monday morning. Richard Berman told authorities Jennifer Berman had sent him an email threatening to “do harm” to herself or the children. Jennifer Berman and the two children were found dead inside with gunshot wounds.
No motive has been confirmed for the shootings, but neighbors told WFOR-TV that Jennifer Bowman had been experiencing financial difficulties, and was in danger of losing the home, which originally owned by her mother. The Post reported that the residence has been in foreclosure since June 2010. Richard Berman is also listed as an owner.
