Four people are dead and one in critical condition after police say a 46-year-old Clermont County, Ohio woman, Theresa Cain, shot and killed her father, husband, son, gunned down her daughter who is alive but in intensive care, and then turned the gun on herself as authorities arrived to evict the family from their foreclosed house.

According to local WXIX News, Clermont County Sheriff Steve Leahy said, “It is tragic and unnecessary. ‘What can we do to keep this from happening again?' Well, I'm just not that sure that we can. When people are in crisis, it's not as easy as just reaching out and saying, ‘I need help.' They are spiraling. Nothing makes sense.”
