Two Adults, Two Children Found Dead In Fontana Home

Fontana, CA -

(FOX 11 / AP) Four people, two of them children, were found killed in a Southern California home, police said.

A 16-year-old boy called police Monday night to say his family members were injured or killed in the house, Fontana police Sgt. Doug Imhof said.

Police arrived to find a bloody scene with the bodies of a boy about 10 years old, a girl about 12 years old and a man and woman each about 35 or 40 years old, Imhof told news media outlets.

Fontana police Chief Rodney Jones told media outlets that the deaths were homicides.

It appeared all four lived in the home, Imhof said, but police did not immediately say what their relationships were.

Detectives found the bodies and blood spread throughout the house, but had stopped the investigation while they sought a search warrant, police Imhof said.

"There is some amounts of blood in different areas of the house," Imhof told news media outlets. "There's a couple of weapons that have been seen by our detectives just looking, but they haven't been able to search the house because they can't until they obtain a search warrant."

Beyond his mention of the weapons, Imhof gave no indication of how the people may have been killed or who the killer may have been, and it was not clear why a warrant was needed.

Neighbor Jessica Arauz told the media there was arguing coming from the house earlier in the evening.

Phone messages left with police by the Associated Press were not immediately returned.

The home is in Fontana, a city of about 200,000 people in San Bernardino County about 50 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is holding its monthly board meeting, two days after it heard from a panel on what it needs to do to improve its accountability and efficiency and restore public trust.
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey could rescind a $1-a-year lease for a park-and-ride lot near the Lincoln Tunnel. The agency's chief of real estate and development told a committee Wednesday that it should change a deal made in 2012. Published reports have alleged that former Port Authority chairman David Samson voted to approve the lease even though his law firm did business with New Jersey Transit, which operates the park-and-ride lot.
