” A family of five was found fatally shot in a Saco apartment on Sunday afternoon, and police said late Sunday they are considering the possibility that the deaths of the man, his wife and their three children were a murder-suicide.

  Police said the shootings in a second-floor apartment at 35 Water St. could have taken place around 11:30 p.m. Saturday, when neighbors reported hearing a sound like “firecrackers” going off.

  But the bodies of the family members were not discovered until Sunday afternoon in bedrooms in their apartment. A preliminary examination by a deputy state medical examiner indicated that each person had been shot to death.”

   The victims include three children ages 12 , 7 , & 4 , all found shot to death in their home along with a gun and the bodies of their mother and father . The Portland Press Herald has the details .
