FONTANA, Calif. (AP) — A man apparently killed his wife and their two children before turning the gun on himself in a Southern California home, police said Tuesday.

Officers called to the home at about 8:30 p.m. Monday found the bodies of Ramon Miranda, 38, and Silvia Miranda, 34, and their children, 12-year-old Ramon Jr. and 10-year-old Rayna, according to 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.

Police said they were called by the 16-year-old son of Silvia Miranda who did not live at the home but went there after being unable to reach his mother all day. When he saw what happened, he called police.

Jonathan Garcia, 22, who lives across the street, said he was watching television at about 8:30 p.m. when he heard yelling.
