State Police said a mother, father, and three children were found dead in their home in Saco Sunday.
Police say a friend of the family called a worker associated with the apartment complex to check on the family after growing concerned for them.
The worker entered the apartment, saw one body and called Saco Police around 1:30 ET Sunday afternoon. When officers arrived, they discovered the other bodies in three different rooms.
In a statement, State Police said “all indications are that no one outside of the family was responsible for the deaths.” They said a gun was found in the apartment next to one of the bodies.
The Nigerian city of Lagos on Monday shut down and quarantined a hospital where a man died of Ebola in the first recorded case of the highly infectious disease in Africa’s most populous country.
Patrick Sawyer, a consultant for the Liberian finance ministry in his 40s, collapsed on arrival at Lagos airport on July 20 and was put in isolation at the First Consultants Hospital in Obalende, one of the most crowded parts of a city that is home to 21 million people. He died on Friday.
“We have shut the hospital to enable us to properly quarantine the environment. Some of the hospital staff who were in close contact with the victim have been isolated,” Lagos state health commissioner Jide Idris told Nigerian TV.
The hospital will be shut for a week and all staff monitored to ensure the virus has not spread, he added.
