A California jury has convicted a 32-year-old man in connection with the fatal shootings of his daughter, three sons, and mother-in-law in 2021.

Just before 10:30 p.m. on Nov. 28, 2021, the four young victims’ mother called 911 after she discovered the children and their grandmother shot dead in their Lancaster home.

All five victims were struck by gunfire in their upper torsos and died at the scene, KTTV reported.

The victims were later identified by the L.A. County coroner's office as 51-year-old Erika England, 11-year-old Namyiah, 7-year-old Germarcus Jr., 2-year-old Kayden and 1-year-old Noah.

Court documents show the victims were shot multiple times, and in some cases with both a handgun and a shotgun.

Neighbors told police they heard gunshots and screams coming from the home. A short time later, the children's mother came home and found the bodies of her four children and her mother. Officials said she was seen running around the front yard screaming, "My babies are gone! They're all dead!"

Germarcus David, 32, later turned himself over to police, and he was charged with the murders, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

On March 12, a jury convicted David for the slayings of his four children and mother-in-law, KABC reported. He was found guilty on all eight counts, including five counts of murder and three counts of assault on a child with force likely to produce bodily injury or death.

A sentencing hearing will be held at a later date.
