LONDON, Ont. -- All three members of a family found dead in their apartment last week were killed by gunshot wounds, police said.

Police are treating the case as a murder-suicide and are still investigating to determine the manner of death -- as in who committed murder and who committed suicide, said Const. Melissa Duncan.

Police have also confirmed the names of the trio as Mohammad Walji, 43, Shyroz Walji, 42, and Qyzra Walji, 21.

The deaths have sent shockwaves through the city, especially in the special needs community where Qyzra -- who had cerebral palsy -- was well known.

Since Thursday, when police reported finding the three bodies, e-mails have continued to come in to QMI Agency, with friends and acquaintances recalling the kindness and generosity of Qyzra's parents and her own joyful spirit.
