A Texas mother of four came home to a gruesome scene on Tuesday, June 24, when she discovered three of her children shot dead. Police have ruled the tragedy an apparent double murder-suicide. How sad.
“My baby is dead!” the unidentified mother screamed at a 911 operator over the phone after discovering three of her children dead inside of their family home. Rebecca Mughal, 15, and her two brothers, Fahad, 23, and Faheem, 18 were found lifeless in different rooms of the home. A gunman has yet to be identified by police.
Mother Discovers 3 Children Dead From Gunshot Wounds Inside Family Home
What an unspeakable tragedy.
At around 2pm on Tuesday, June 24, 911 received a frantic phone call from a distraught woman screaming that her baby was dead, reports the Daily Mail.
The woman, an unidentified mother of four, came home to find her two youngest children had been shot dead inside of their home. When Stafford Police arrived she told them two of her children were dead inside the home. However, upon further investigation, police discovered three bodies in total.
The three victims are Rebecca, 15, Faheem, 18, and their older brother, Fahad, 23. The siblings bodies were discovered in different rooms, and one of the boys was allegedly armed, but a gunman has yet to be identified by police.
Multiple different firearms were removed from the home, including pistols and rifles, and they will all undergo a ballistic test so that investigators know which ones were used in what they are calling a horrific double murder-suicide.
Fahad Tweeted About Gun Violence 4 Days Before Murder-Suicide
In an eerie turn of events, just days before being found dead inside of his home the eldest brother, Fahad, tweeted about gun violence.
“People cant keep their fingers off a trigger these days,” the tweet, dated June 20, read.
Although a gunman has yet to be identified, a character witness named Lauren Garza has revealed that Fahad was a high school dropout with an explosive temper.
Sadly, police do not believe they will ever understand why this tragedy took place.
When asked about a potential motive, Lt. James Leedom responded: “We may never know.”
Our thoughts go out to the Mughal family at this very difficult time.
