    Well the 4 murders were in West DSM. The drive-bys were DSM and there were no fatalities.

    Historically, Des Moines murders per year were single digits. Last few yrs, it has spiked.
    http://www.city-data.com/crime/crime-Des-Moines-Iowa.html

    2017 was a bad year. 2018 isn't on this link, but the number was down again as I recall to "normal" levels.

    <edit> There were 9 murders in Des Moines in 2018.

    For West Des Moines, these 4 are probably as many as they get in a decade.

    The murder-suicide in WDSM on Saturday is devastating. I know those kids and they are the nicest, most polite kids it's heartbreaking. The mom was quiet but kind. Just awful.

    There was other family (relatives) living in the house at the time. I thought maybe it was an inter-family conflict.

    Out of respect for the family, Shrikar did not wish to reveal their names at this time but saw a strong future in both Sunkara boys. "They participated in all the academy competitions and even at the national level. "Really bright children. Just heads down and minded their business always," Somayajula said.

    The Sunkara family had high hopes for both children. Despite being just ten and fifteen years old, both developed a passion for a top notch education. Somayajula said, "They wanted to go to one of the top Ivy League colleges the likes of Harvard and stuff but unfortunately they didn’t make it."

    This. Both those boys were just so damn bright and kind. I don't recall Chandra ever showing any kind of violent tendencies, this is all so weird.

    These stories always so sad....when someone for whatever reason takes their own life, but on top of that takes out others (their own kids) :-/

    I remember this story out of the Iowa City area and it had a similar initial vibe: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/bank-crimes-drove-iowa-man-to-slay-family/ (but he had a crime, so i guess that made sense his world was changing)...but again, just go out on your own.
