The police still haven’t put anything out about this one, but a Queens man reportedly  shot his wife and two daughters and then killed himself early this morning at the family’s home.

The New York Post reports that Nassau County bus driver Mark Bailey left a note in the kitchen, which said, “I am sorry. Love Mark.” He was found dead in a living room chair. The bodies of his wife, Dionne, 42, and daughters Yonique, 19, and Yolon, 14, were found in their bedrooms.

The Post says all had been shot in the head with a 9 mm pistol. Dionne Bailey was an assistant principal at Philip Randolph High School. Yonique was attending Stony Brook University. Yolon was at Cardozo High School.

The Post says that police reached the scene after no one answered the door this morning when coworkers arrived to pick her up for work. The coworkers called relatives, who came to the home. A brother-in-law looked in through a window and saw blood on a pillow. Someone called 911.
