A 28-year-old man allegedly killed his girlfriend and her family in their Pomona home on Thursday night in what authorities suspect was a murder-suicide.

Police officers went to the home on the 2100 block of Ramsey Way just before midnight after a relative of the family called the police asking for them to check up on the family, according to KABC. The victims' relative received calls from the man saying that he would harm the family.

Coroner chief Chief Craig Harvey told City News Service that the victims were a 52-year-old mother, her 24-year-old daughter and her 17-year-old son. Investigators told KTLA that the mother was in bed when she was fatally shot. The alleged shooter's body was found at the foot of his girlfriend's bed. A watch commander said that the boyfriend lived with his girlfriend's family in the home.

Police are investigating the motive behind the case. The names of the victims have not been released yet.
