Two women and two men were shot and killed inside the home, one of whom was pregnant. It is not clear whether the shooter knew the victims, or if they were aware that the one woman was pregnant at the time she was killed. The shooters also shot the female child who was home at the time, and they probably assumed that they had killed her as well.
This in-home shooting may have been a robbery, or it may have just been a settlement in a dispute. With the adults in the home shot and killed, police are looking for clues as to what exactly happened. Investigators have been talking to residents in the surrounding area to try and find witnesses who may have seen the criminal or criminals responsible for the shooting deaths.

The four dead adults were arranged in a manner that looks like an execution-style killing. Medical Examiners began studying the scene to try to put together a profile of who may have been responsible for the murders. The 10 year old girl found in the home has not provided any information that has led to any suspects at this point.
