Allen Murder Suicide, Death – The Allen Police Department has named the members of the family that was killed in the murder-suicide that occurred on Monday, but they have not yet disclosed the identity of the person who opened fire. They are Farman and Layla Sherwani, together with their two boys, Shaheen, who is 12 years old, and Mateen, who is 2 years old. The agency also disclosed that the couple had another kid, a girl named Lyian who was 4 years old and had passed away three weeks earlier due to drowning.
During a welfare check at the family’s house on Aberdeen Drive, which is located not too far from Exchange Parkway, law enforcement officials found the family at around 8:45 a.m. on August 28. After being locked out of their residence for a couple of hours and being unable to go inside or make contact with other members of their family, a member of the family decided to phone the police. The Allen Independent School District verified that Shaheen was enrolled in the fifth grade at Olson Elementary School. The residence is located a short distance away from the school.
The following is an excerpt from a communication that was delivered to parents by district officials: The news has left each and every one of us stunned and upset. I would be grateful if you could remember my family and loved ones in your prayers and thoughts during the next several weeks and months. According to statements made by neighbors to CBS News Texas, they observed members of the bereaved family staring into space as their cries shattered the tranquility of the morning.
