“We got very upset, you know it’s a terrible feeling. We didn’t understand why and we felt, we knew we didn’t have any enemies so to speak, and nothing ever happens here. It’s a very quiet neighborhood,” Barbara Bernasconi said.

It’s unclear if the families were targeted or if it was a random crime.

Police said that there are no surveillance cameras in the area and no leads in the case.
