(Newser) – A well-respected music teacher and former tenor with the Greater Miami Opera Chorus shot to death two daughters, ages 13 and 14, and his wife before killing himself this morning, police say. His 16-year-old son escaped the house during the rampage by Pablo Josue Amador, 54, the Herald reports. Police have not speculated about a motive.

"Crying/hurting inside. Don't know how to deal. Not even gonna try attempting anymore," wrote Amadour's 20-year-old daughter on her Facebook page today. "Whatever. Life sucks."
