Sunnyvale police are still searching for suspects in a shooting that killed a woman and injured a man and his three children on Sunday.

The man has been released from the hospital but the three children, ages 8 to 10, remain hospitalized. They are stable but in critical condition, Sunnyvale police Chief Bill Vegas said during a press conference Monday morning.

The woman has since been identified as Tyesha Merritt, 27. She was the sister of the man who was hospitalized.

“We are saddened by this event here,” Vegas said. “This is not something that is typical of Sunnyvale. It’s like no other community…we don’t normally experience this type of stuff.”

Police say the victims had just made it home and hadn’t even gotten out of their car when a gunman came up and shot them.
