San Mateo couple found dead in apparent murder-suicide, police say
San Mateo police officers responding to a welfare check request Wednesday morning found a couple who died in an apparent murder-suicide. Officers went to a residence on the 1400 block of Young Street in San Mateo at 9:39 a.m. and found the couple dead in what police describe as an “isolated incident contained to the home.” The couple was not identified by police. The cause of their deaths was unknown. “We mourn the loss of our community members,” police said in a statement. “Our hearts and prayers go out to the family in the death of their loved ones.” Detectives with San Mateo police’s Investigations Bureau are investigating the incident.
The child was killed at the scene, Minchew said at a news conference Wednesday.
The boy's mother, who was upstairs at the time with a 1-month-old, "thought there were fireworks going off downstairs," Minchew said.
The mother went downstairs, at which point a suspect "accosted her" and demanded money at gunpoint, Minchew said.
She said she didn't have money and the suspects fled on foot through the apartment complex, Minchew said.
"They made off with nothing," Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said, calling it a "brazen attack."
"Why kill a 2-year-old?" Gonzalez said to reporters on Wednesday.
"When you're shooting kids, this is senseless and unacceptable," Gonzalez said. "We're seeing way too much gun violence, especially focused on our children."
It does not appear the mother knew the suspects, the sheriff said.
