PITTSBURG (CBS13) — Investigators discovered four family members dead in a quiet neighborhood home after a man told police about the murders before shooting himself.
The Pittsburg Police Department said they found the bodies of a 73-year-old man and a 65-year-old woman in one bedroom and a 35-year-old woman in another bedroom at the Contra Costa County home after receiving a phone call from the man identified by neighbors as 39-year-old Jason Aube.
The suspected shooter called authorities early Thursday morning to tell police he had killed his family and was planning to kill himself, according to Lt. Ron Raman.
Aube apparently left a suicide note to some of his family and friends on his Facebook page, blaming financial problems and fears he would lose his home.
There were no signs of a struggle and investigators say the victims may have been sleeping when the shooting began.
Authorities have not yet confirmed the identities of the victims, but neighbors said Aube was living inside the home with his wife and her retired parents.
