Detectives are still searching for a motive for Monday's violence in San Antonio
Four members of a Texas family died Monday morning as the result of a triple murder-suicide, officials confirm.
San Antonio Police have yet to officially identify the dead, but surviving relatives have started a GoFundMe campaign to help cover funeral costs for all four.
Through the GoFundMe page, the family identified the three murder victims as Felicitas Guillen-Hurtado, 80, Josefina H. Gonzalez, 67, and Jose Guadalupe-Hurtado, 60.
The suspected killer, Ruben H. Gonzalez, 28, ended his own life, shooting himself in the head with a shotgun, according to relatives who spoke to KSAT.
First responders summoned to the scene found the bodies of Gonzalez, the suspect’s mother, and Guadalupe-Hurtado, his uncle.
Inside the home the family shared, police found the shooter and his grandmother, Guillen-Hurtado. All three victims died from fatal gunshot wounds. The house was also set on fire.

A neighbor told KSAT the shooter was “not a social guy.”
“The guy carried an AK-47 inside the house,” the neighbor said, adding that Gonzalez’s presence in the neighborhood made him uneasy.
A motive is unknown for the killings.
