Barricaded Inside Home With His Parents, Siblings, And Grandma…Cops Try To Talk Him Down, But…

A family of six have died in what police believe was a murder-suicide Wednesday night in Chesapeake, Virginia. This a horrific crime that never should have happened:

Authorities were first called to a home on the 2300 block of Wildwood Road around 3.35pm to conduct a welfare
check, and found a dead body.

Their investigation led them to a home just down the street where armed man Cameron Dooley, had barricaded himself inside.

SWAT teams were called and a negotiator spent several hours trying to talk the man into opening the doors.

Eventually, police stormed the house and found five additional bodies – including the man they had been negotiating with.

A source told 10 On Your Side WAVY.com that the victims were Cameron’s grandmother Doris Dooley, his father Todd Dooley, his mother Lori Dooley, his sister Brooke Dooley and brother Landon Dooley.

Neighbor Kelly Ferguson told WTKR that the family were always around for community get-togethers like picnics, cookouts and birthday parties.

‘They will be missed,’ Ferguson said.

Another neighbor who lives across the street from one of the homes told a reporter for WAVY that the situation came as a shock to the area.

‘It’s crazy, it’s too much. I’m right beside it,’ Demetrius Peacock said. ‘My family and I don’t feel safe.’

The family were members of the Temple Baptist Church of Chesapeake and Todd Dooley was a Chesapeake Police Officer with the Marine Dive Unit.

Could this tragedy have been prevented? No one will ever know. If you or your family thinks they are in danger, please, do not hesitate in getting the proper authorities involved. If you are a neighbor or even a passerby, there is no harm, no foul in calling for a welfare check from your local PD. We all need to work together to help those who are mentally ill and prevent tragic deaths like these.
