Two parents and two children were found dead in a house in Hod Hasharon on Thursday morning in what police suspected to be a murder-suicide. A Magen David Adom team pronounced the family of four dead. The children, one-year-old and three-year-old and the parents were found lifeless with gunshot wounds. Around 10:20 a.m. the police emergency line received a call reporting shooting sounds from a Hod Hasharon apartment. Rescue forces arriving on the scene confronted the horror of finding an entire family slain.
