Kill ex-girlfriend, mom and brother; then she kills herself

Five people were found dead at a home in La Plata, southern Maryland, on Friday in a murder-suicide case, the Charles County Sheriff’s Office reported Saturday.

The bodies were found by law enforcement around 4 p.m. Friday after a witness called 911 to report a shooting, spokeswoman Diane Richardson confirmed. When police arrived they found the homeowner at the front door, who said he had returned from work and discovered five people dead inside.

Initial investigations showed a suspect identified as 28-year-old Andre Sales had entered the home and shot four people to death before shooting himself with the same gun, which was recovered at the scene.

The victims were identified as his ex-girlfriend Sara Mann, 21, his mother Sommaly Mann, 48, and his younger brother Kai Mann, 18. The fourth victim was Javon Watson, 23, but his relationship with the other victims is not yet clear.

Autopsies will determine the cause of death for each victim.

Two unidentified children were found safe elsewhere.
