More details are expected Tuesday afternoon about the quadruple homicide at a crowded Northridge boarding home that happened Sunday.

Los Angeles detectives plan on releasing information about the case at a 4 p.m. news conference.

Officers found four people shot dead in the front lawn of a home on the 17000 block of Devonshire on Sunday around 4:30 a.m. A person living in the home called 911 after being awakened by the sound of gunfire. One neighbor said she heard four or five rapid gunshots.

Police are keeping a tight lid on the case, but family members of the victims came to the house Monday to see where their loved ones died.

Rolina Calabia said her brother, 34-year old Robert Calabia, didn’t live at the house.  She believes her brother might have known some of the other victims or people living at the house.

Another family visited the crime scene Monday and spoke to KTLA.

Family members told KTLA that one of the female victims was 25-year-old Amanda Ghossein. They said Ghossein has a 1-year-old daughter and was about to celebrate her 25th birthday on Tuesday. She had dreams of becoming a fashion designer.
