A woman allegedly killed three male family members and then herself after accusing the men of domestic abuse.
Khosay Sharifi, 31, allegedly shot dead her father, brother-in-law and his dad on Tuesday (August 23), before shooting herself in a parking lot in Lynn, Massachusetts, USA.
Sharifi posted a message on Facebook before her alleged suicide where she accused the three victims of domestic abuse.

She wrote: “Several months ago, I found out that my sister has been abused by her husband for 14 years (since they first met).
“He has chocked [sic] her, slapped, kicked, swore at her & the most recent a year and half ago has punched her in the face.”
Sharifi then accused her brother-in-law’s dad and her own father of being aware of the alleged abuse of her sister and not doing much about it.
“My parents & his parents knew all these years but have not really done much but say ‘work it out’ ‘what will people say if you separate’ or even victim blaming,” she wrote.
She then addressed her sister in the post, writing: “I hope you start healing & actually teach your daughters that abuse is not ok as they have also witnessed him slap you.
“I asked how they felt about that & they said they were scared & didn’t know what to do.”
Sharifi accused her father of abusing her mum and questioned whether that was the reason her mum was unable to protect her own daughter.

“Maybe that’s why my mom did not protect her own daughter, because she’s a victim herself,” she wrote and added that she will "not deal with this nonsense".
Officers from the Lynn Police Department responded to a report of shots fired just before 3pm and found two men, aged 34 and 66, dead from apparent gunshot wounds who have since been identified as Sharifi’s father and brother-in-law.
Just before 4.30pm, cops found Sharifi dead inside her car in a Stop & Shop parking lot about a mile away and later discovered the brother-in-law's dad body in the car.
A relative posted a tribute, writing: “We have lost four loved ones in devastating and unforeseen circumstances.
“Time and time again, mental health is demonstrated to be such a prominent issue in society, abuse of all types takes a significant toll on individuals affected, and leads to damage and loss in many ways.”
