According to reports, five family members were shot at apparently in execution style in Madras.

Four people died at the crime scene. One family member, a 25 -year- old man who was also in the house, survived the shooting. The man immediately alerted neighbours who then notified police.

The same house where the victims were found was torched after the shooting by the same suspects.
