KingAlarm, the security company to which the victims were employed is expressing shock at the incident.

The agency says it has launched its own investigation into the matter.

Managing Director at KingAlarm John Azar says Martin, the man who killed his common law wife before turning the gun on himself,  had been employed to the company for over 16 years and that he considers him a friend having worked closely with him in various capacities during the period.

Azar says reports from members of the team are that Martin was seen in a jovial and pleasant mood before the incident.

He says in addition to counseling for the team members, an offer has been extended to Martin's family to provide them with grief and Post Traumatic Stress counseling as well.
