From the NY Post:

A man shot his wife and two daughters and then turned the gun on himself in Queens this morning in an apparent murder-suicide — even leaving a note behind saying he was “sorry” for commiting the gruesome crime, police sources said.

Cops discovered the four bodies at 145-20 230th Place in Springfield Gardens after the father, Mark Bailey, a bus driver in Nassau County, shot his family in their bedrooms, police said.

Bailey was found in chair in the main room. All four had gunshot wounds to the head with a 9mm pistol.

A note was also found in the kitchen, where Baily wrote, “I am sorry. Love, Mark,” according to police sources.

His wife, Dionne, 42, was an assistant principal at Philip Randolph High School.

One daughter, 19-year-old Yonique, was a student at Stony Brook University and the other, 14-year-old Yolon, was a student at Cardozo High School.

The family moved to this country from Jamaica nearly 20 years ago.
