UPDATE 03:49 pm 08/07/2011:  From the Anne Arundel County Police:

On August 7, 2011 at approximately 8:58 a.m., officers from the Northern District responded to the 600 block of Wood Street in Brooklyn Park. Upon arrival, officers met with the caller, an adult female, in reference to her adult son. The mother indicated her son sent her a text message, and the message’s despondent tone made her concerned for her son’s well being and the safety of his family. The mother and another relative came to the home on Wood Street and subsequently called for police assistance to check on her son. Shortly after officers arrived, and while they were speaking to the mother outside the home, officers heard a single gunshot from inside the residence.

Officers immediately entered the home upon hearing the gunshot. Once inside, they found a deceased adult male suffering from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Officers additionally found a deceased adult female and two deceased teenaged juveniles inside the home. Each of the victims suffered gunshot wounds, and it appears this incident was murder/suicide where the male shot the other members of his family before shooting himself.

Preliminary information indicates all four persons resided in the home together. As of this writing, the names, ages and exact relationship between the deceased male shooter and the three victims remains under investigation and is not being released. This does not appear to be a random act and there is currently no indication any other person was involved. The Anne Arundel County Police Department’s Homicide Unit is actively investigating, and no further information is available at this time.

Anne Arundel County police are on the scene of an apparent murder suicide in Brooklyn Park.

Four bodies have been found including two children.

More details to follow.
