“It’s upsetting for all of us, it’s upsetting for the community, the neighborhood, the officers, especially the officers that responded to the scene and had to deal with such a horrendous event,” Officer Eve Laokwansathitaya said, according to KGO. The slain woman was identified as Barbara Child with her surviving husband identified as Roland Child, KTVU reported. A neighbor told the station she received a call from a distraught Roland following the killing. He sounded like he was in left field,” Effie Bountouvas said. “All he said was, ‘I lost my Barbara.’” Bountouvas said the slain suspect was a lawyer. The Standard and Mission Local also reported that the alleged killer was a lawyer who was licensed to practice in the state. Court records indicate the 37-year-old was accused of assaulting loved ones at least two other times, the Standard reported. His parents sought a restraining order against their son after he attacked them both in 2021, court records reportedly indicate. The fatal police shooting of Child is under investigation, as is the death of his mother and the pet dog.
