A man shot to death his wife, their three young children, and the family dog before fatally shooting himself. A neighbor heard what sounded like gunshots in the area the evening of July 28 and their bodies were discovered when the man’s coworker called police for a wellness check the next morning. The bodies of John Nelson, 44, wife Robin, 35, and their three children, Gavin, 12, Brianna, 10, and Liam, six, were discovered inside their Elyria home just after 8am.
