A shooting in Coronado, Calif., that left four people dead, including two Navy pilots and one of their sisters, is being investigated as an apparent murder-suicide.
The New Year's Day shooting in a condo there claimed the lives of siblings David and Karen Reis, 25 and 24, respectively, as well as David's roommate, John Reeves, 25, and a fourth unknown man.
David Reis and Reeves were both pilots in the Navy, and shared the condo home in Coronado, sources told ABC affiliate KGTV. The other dead man is a 31-year-old civilian who lives in Chula Vista, according to the county Medical Examiner's Office.
The siblings and Reeves went out together in downtown San Diego to celebrate New Year's Eve Saturday night, and returned to the condo with the fourth man, whose identity has not been released, the sources said.
A retired Navy pilot who lives next door to the condo told KGTV that he heard seven shots early Sunday morning. "There were two shots, about a five-second pause, and then five more," Don Hubbard said.
Hubbard said he spoke with police after the shooting, who said they believed the crime was a murder-suicide and that they had found the murder weapon.

A love quadrangle?
Our first military homosexual murderer?
Our first military homosexual murderer? At least since DADT was repealed.
My bet is on the 4th guy, for whatever motive
Imagine the despair of the family that lost 2 children ...
I’m guessing sister was girlfriend of brother’s roommate, and sister’s ex-boyfriend didn’t like that.
There is much to be imagined here. Makes no sense really.
These were active duty military personnel, and they fully deserve respectful silence until the investigations are complete.
Bingo! My exact thought upon reading the description.
“How can you write such hideous remarks until the facts are better known?
These were active duty military personnel, and they fully deserve respectful silence until the investigations are complete.”
You guys sound like total idiots speculating on motive for this with as little info as there is.
How about STFU unless you know something, or unless you just want to sound important on an internet forum.
They were training at Miramar. Coronado is a great place to live and not too far of a drive.
you left off "hole"
What kind of training would the Navy be doing at MCAS Miramar? I thought all the Navy F/A-18 were at Lemoore.
I don't fly them, I just arm them, but it is my understanding that some of the trainer jets are based out of Miramar.
My guess? The Military will be *very* interested in the case. That was a significant investment in both money and time that got blown away.
Why? The woman was a sister to one of them. Murder suicides (as it is being called) are most often committed by men against a lover or spouse. And you are now allowed to openly flaunt your homosexuality in the military.
So, we are left with two possibilities; one of the men was dating the sister and then killed everyone or one of the men was dating one of the other men and then killed everyone.
Am I so for off base in the realm of possibilities?
“These were active duty military personnel, “
As if there aren’t homosexuals openly serving in active duty?
