Has everyone lost their damn mind?!?!
The mother of a man police say shot his wife, her twin teenage children and himself to death called police after receiving a disturbing text message from him and feared for their safety, authorities said on Sunday.
As officers arrived at the home in a neighborhood south of Baltimore to check on the family, they heard a single gunshot. Anne Arundel County Police investigators said 33-year-old Kelly Brian Thompson killed Nina Thompson, 34, and her 15-year-old children, Taishawn Pugh and Treshawn Pugh at the home.
The single shot officers heard was Kelly Thompson killing himself, said Lt. J.D. Batten.
The despondent tone of the text message made the man’s mother concerned for her son’s well-being and his family’s safety, Batten said.
Residents of Brooklyn Park, a neighborhood of brick townhouses, gathered on their porches and yards to discuss the morning shooting, noting that times might be tough, but they couldn’t believe that the man they had met would harm his family. Kelly Thompson was not the biological father of the twin boy and girl.
Sad state of affairs. If you want to kill yourself then just go ahead, but why take the wife and children with you?! Pretty f@#$ing selfish if you ask us…
