Man, children with Hawaii ties dead after apparent murder-suicide in Oregon
BEAVERTON, Ore. (HawaiiNewsNow) -
A man and two children with Hawaii ties are dead after an apparent murder-suicide in their Oregon apartment Wednesday afternoon.
Police in Beaverton said 36-year-old Lakalo Kawika Enfield fatally shot himself. His two children, ages 8 and 6, were also found dead.
A neighbor reportedly called police after hearing a woman yelling, “He’s killing our children.”
Authorities said the children’s mother was in the apartment when it happened, but she was unharmed. She is reportedly staying with a neighbor as she waits for her relatives from Hawaii to arrive in Oregon.
Police said officers responded to a domestic incident at the Enfields’ home last week after a verbal disturbance, but there were no signs of assault and the husband agreed to leave.
