Sheriff Investigating Christmas Day Murder-Suicide In San Lorenzo

SAN LORENZO (KPIX 5) — The Alameda County Sheriff’s department was busy Christmas morning investigating a murder suicide in San Lorenzo.

Officers taped off an area at the intersection of Via Amigos and Via Lucas after finding a man and woman shot to death inside.

“When they got there, they found a woman who had multiple gunshot wounds and a male who had a single gunshot wound, said Alameda County sheriff’s Sgt J.D. Nelson. “At this point, we believe it is a murder suicide.”

This is the last thing Veronica Rodriguez wanted to hear.

“My niece told me, she said my sister was there. And I just asked her what happened and she said they don’t know, her and my brother-in-law were dead,” she said.

Rodriguez said her sister may have been having some problems, but she insisted she was okay.
