A 10 month old baby, two young children, and one adult were murdered by a gun toting Illinoian, who then killed him/her self. I would like to suggest that this household should not have had firearms in it. The children were not part of the argument that led to this carnage.
And no, it is not true that the same thing could have happened by using Scotch Tape or a piece of rope or some poison.
A family of five, including a baby and two other children, was found shot to death in the small eastern Illinois farming town of Emington, a county official said Friday.
Livingston County board member Bob Young, who lives in Emington, said the dead included a man, a woman, an infant, a first grader and a fourth grader. The family had moved to the town about 80 miles southwest of Chicago within the last six months and the two older children attend school in nearby Saunemin, Young said. The street where the family lived was closed by police, he said.
