A California father has been arrested on suspicion of murdering his four children and their grandmother inside their home.

Gemarcus David, 29, turned himself in to sheriffs in Lancaster after the shooting on Sunday evening, and on Monday was arrested.

The bodies of the four children, who locals said were all under the age of 12, and their grandmother aged in her 50s were found at the house that David jointly owned with a woman, Tyanna Brown.  

David is a licensed security guard whose firearm permit was canceled, according to a state database analyzed by The Los Angeles Times. The California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services were unable to explain the cancellation. 

Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a home in Lancaster, north of Los Angeles, at around 10.30pm, after they received a call that someone had stopped breathing, ABC 7 reported.

When the deputies arrived at the scene, they found an adult woman and four children suffering from gunshot wounds to the upper torso. 

All of the children – three boys and a girl, according to CBS Los Angeles – were pronounced dead at the scene.
