A 28-year-old man is suspected of killing his ex-girlfriend, two of her relatives and another man inside a Maryland home before killing himself, authorities said.

A Maryland homeowner returned from work to find five people dead in his home in what police said was a quadruple murder-suicide.

The Charles County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to a residential home in La Plata, Maryland on Friday and found the homeowner at the front door and two women and three men dead with body trauma.

The preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect, Andre Sales, 28, entered the home and killed his ex-girlfriend, Sara Mann, 21 ; her brother, Kai Mann, 18; his mother, Sommaly Mann, 48; and another man who was inside, 23-year-old Javon Watson.

According to police, Sales, who resides at a different residence, later shot himself with a gun.

Two young children who were initially missing were later found safe and sound in a different location.

Investigators and forensic staff were still processing evidence and interviewing family and friends to establish a motive, according to the news release. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore will conduct autopsies to confirm the cause of death for each person.

This case comes a week after authorities are following up on a similar incident in Tulsa, where two parents are suspected of killing their six children before setting their home on fire and committing suicide in a horrific murder-suicide case.

Neighbors called the police to report a fire in a residential area of ​​Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, 20 kilometers southeast of Tulsa, where the macabre discovery was later made known.
