Family shooter was mentally ill
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.
