Los Angeles Times - - National Briefing -

Relatives of a woman who fa­tally shot three fam­ily mem­bers and her­self at a Seat­tle home Thurs­day said she suf­fered from de­pres­sion and schizophre­nia.

KIRO-TV re­ported the fam­ily re­leased a state­ment mourn­ing the loss of four fam­ily mem­bers. The state­ment said the woman, whom they iden­ti­fied as Saroeun Phan, had sought med­i­cal at­ten­tion many times and had been tak­ing med­i­ca­tion, though it wasn’t clear whether she had been do­ing so in re­cent months.

The fam­ily said no ar­gu­ments or fights took place the night be­fore.

Po­lice re­spond­ing to a re­port of gun­shots Thurs­day af­ter­noon found four dead in the home. An­other woman was in­jured.
