An optician suspected of murdering three family members posted a chilling message on social media as police rushed to the scene after gunshots were heard.

Khosay Sharifi, 31, claimed that her twin sister had been abused for the entirety of her 14-year marriage – which was then ignored by their relatives.

The post said: ‘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.

I'm trying to say all this as nice as I can so my post doesn't get deleted.

There's no excuse for what he did. ‘He kept doing it because no one did anything about it.

Police confirmed that she shot her father, 66, and brother-in-law at the property on Rockaway Street, before shooting dead her brother-in-law’s father, 56, in his minivan on Leighton Street.

All three of the crime scenes were within a one-mile radius of each other, with officers quickly identifying Sharifi as the killer.

 she also spoke directly to her sister, writing: ‘To my sister: 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. Let's not pass this on to your kids as it has been passed on to you.
