LYNN, Mass. — Authorities have identified four family members who were found dead Tuesday in a murder-suicide that spanned three crime scenes in Lynn.
Officers responding to a report of shots fired at 98 Rockaway Street just before 3 p.m. learned a 31-year-old Kahosay Sharifi had fatally shot her 66-year-old father, Mohamad Sharifi, and her 34-year-old brother-in-law, Sanjar Halin, according to Essex District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett.
Kahosay Sharifi then traveled to 44 Laighton Street, where she fatally shot Abdul Halin, the 56-year-old father of her brother-in-law, Blodgett said.
Blodgett said Kahosay Sharifi then traveled to the parking lot of a Stop & Shop on Washington Street, where she took her own life. Investigators noted that she died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Authorities are continuing to interview witnesses and the motive remains unclear.
State troopers assigned to the DA’s office are assisting Lynn police with an investigation.
