A manhunt continues for the killer or killers of a woman and her three children. A family friend discovered the bodies just before 8 o'clock on Monday morning at the Windcrest Estacado Apartments on North MLK. He was reportedly there to take the children to school.

The person who called 9-1-1 says they found the three children and their mother dead inside the Windcrest Estacado Apartments. Lubbock Police Spokesman Victor Quintana says the man was there to pick up the children for school. Police say the victims are 11-year-old Mahogany Jasmine Allen, twins Kadiele and Kasheim Allen, both 9-years-old and their mother, 45-year-old Tammy Cooper. "We're not going to go into details about their injuries but they appear to be violent in nature," says Quintana.

Read the press release on the $10,000 reward being offered in the northeast Lubbock homicide case.

This investigation is ongoing as police are still trying to put the pieces together. At this time they do know this family was violently murdered. How, is still the question.

Police believe there was a struggle before the murders. The furniture was knocked over and the crime scene was very bloody. Neighbors are in shock over what happened. Some are ready to pack their bags and move. "Actually, I"m always safe in my apartment. But I do want to move. We need security over here real bad. They don't have. Because every time they close the gates, someone always tears them apart so they don't close so they can get in and out. It's really not safe here," says resident Nathaniel Mitchell.

"Its unsafe here. Like I was telling my wife, it's time for me to get my family and pack up and get away from here. I'm not safe. It's ridiculous this happened here today," said resident Reggie Connors.

Police are not mentioning a murder weapon yet. But the neighbors we talked to said they didn't hear anything happen. Police may be looking for suspect or suspects that have injuries from the murder.
