NEW YORK – Four people — including a young child — were discovered fatally shot in what appeared to be a murder-suicide at a Queens home on Monday, law-enforcement sources said.

The bodies were found inside an apartment in a four-story building at 23-07 30th Drive in Astoria at around 9 p.m., according to the sources.

Two of the victims were women, one was a man and the fourth was a child believed to be about 5 years old, the sources said.

The article goes on to state the following:

Police were called to the scene after a cleaning woman walked into the apartment and discovered the carnage, a source said.

“Upon entering that location, they observed, in quick time, four individuals that were apparently the victims of gunshot wounds,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said at an impromptu press conference Monday night.

Before long, other cops swarmed the residence as a police helicopter flew overhead.

Shea added that police were looking into the possibility that the tragedy was a triple murder and suicide.

The man’s throat was apparently slashed in addition to his being shot, a high-ranking police source said, adding that a gun was recovered at the scene.

Shea said cops had a tentative identification on the man but his name was being withheld. The identities of the other three victims were still being determined early Tuesday morning.
