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.

The incident is still under investigation.
