LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police are calling a man who remains hospitalized after a woman and two children who were shot and killed early Sunday a person of interest in the case.
Family members want to know what would possess a father to shoot his own children and their mother.
Court records detail a history of domestic abuse after a violent murder in PRP early Sunday.
Because the man is still in the hospital, police are not releasing his identity, but family members say shot and killed his own sons and their mother.
Family members are confident he did it -- they just don't know why.
Omega Goldsmith is still struggling with the death of her only sister, Sade' and her 5- and 6-year-old nephews, John and Jon'tee Devine.
Police found mom and her sons shot dead in their PRP home in the 6100 block of Maravian Drive early Sunday.
They had moved into the home around the first of July. Police were called to the home shortly before 6 a.m. on July 15 when the home's security system panic alarm was triggered.
Police say someone had forced their way in through a door. Family members say that person is the same man police found with a gunshot wound next to the bodies on Sunday -- and he is the father of the two young victims.
Court records show he has a violent past -- in 2004, Goldsmith told police her children's father hit her in the head so hard it left her ears ringing. A year later, she called police again to say he punched her in the head.
Other court documents indicate another woman took out an emergency protective order against him in 2011.
At this point, police continue to refer to him only as a person of interest as he continues recovering at University Hospital and has not yet been questioned.
