Oberhoffer, among the first to arrive at the cream-colored home at 33 De Montfort Ave. after victims' relatives called police at 1:20 p.m. Sunday, said officers found a scene of "incredible carnage."

Also in the bedroom was Silva's body, "with his head blown off and a gun at his feet," Oberhoffer said. The wound appeared to be self-inflicted, he said.

Oberhoffer said the scene inside and outside the house quickly became chaotic as grieving relatives, friends and neighbors converged.Silva apparently did not have any police record. 

Oberhoffer said a computer search of police records revealed no previous trouble calls to the family's home near City College.

"When I went inside, there were four bodies on the main floor of the upstairs flat, all within 15 feet of each other," Oberhoffer said. "The baby had already been taken to the hospital. She was sitting in one of those child chairs at the dining room table. She was shot while in the chair. It appeared to be an interrupted dinner scene with the bodies leading to the back bedroom."

Hey DOB did you miss any details?
