Early this morning, just after midnight, police were called to a home in the 8900 block of Yvonne Avenue,
Upon arriving officers located three total victims with gunshot wounds to the head and upper body.
The suspect, identified as Julian Roary, 47 reportedly shot both of his sons, Julian Roary Jr., age 12, and Ian Roary, age 10, before turning the gun on himself.
Police released that the father had recently lost his job and was struggling financially. A suicide note was left with his intentions.
Roary’s girlfriend told police that after hearing what she thought sounded like firecrackers she tried to locate Roary. When she couldn’t, she checked the upstairs bedroom where she located Roary and his sons bleeding & unresponsive.
Both Roary and 12 year old Julian Roary Jr were pronounced dead at the scene.
10 year old Ian Roary was transported to the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, where he was also pronounced dead.
Just this past April, police investigated a separate murder suicide in the Parkville area when 50 year old Gilbert Mendoza killed his wife and 15 year old daughter in their home on Cromwood Road.
