A family friend confirmed to KTVT that the deceased were 19-year-old twins Farhan and Farbin Towhid, their older brother Tanvir, 21, their parents Iren and Towhidul Islam and the children’s grandmother.
When police arrived on the scene early Monday morning, they found all of the victims dead from gunshot wounds. Police confirmed that the deaths were the result of a murder-suicide carried out by the two brothers.
Farhan left a chilling note before he and his older brother carried out the attack, and linked to it in his Instagram profile.
“Hey everyone. I killed myself and my family,” he wrote.

The 19-year-old goes on to detail how he has been battling depression since he began high school, and his brother was as well, so they came up with the plan.
“If we can’t fix everything in a year we’ll kill ourself and our family,” the note says.
Farhan goes on to detail the tragic plan, which involved getting two guns and killing their sister, parents and grandmother before turning the guns on themselves.
“If I killed just myself, they would be miserable,” he wrote. “I love my family. I genuinely do. And that’s exactly why I decided to kill them.”

Farhan detailed years of depression and self-harm in his note, saying that it was difficult to find support when dealing with mental health issues.
Police believe the shootings occurred at some point over the weekend.
The family was part of a tight-knit Bangladeshi community, according to KTVT.
Family-friend Shawn Ahsan told the outlet that he was so shocked after hearing the news he “couldn’t breathe for 20 to 30 minutes.”
