Avon and Somerset Police said the incident would be referred to the policing watchdog due to 'prior police contact with those involved'.
That's getting to be a very familiar phrases, lately...
A woman living nearby said: 'We didn't see much of (the suspect) really, but there had been rows in the past about parking.'
I fondly remember the time when a parking dispute would have meant frosty looks in the street or maybe a scrap between the men of the house, not a home invasion and the murder of him and his wife in front of their children.
'Two young children were inside the property at the time of the incident and while thankfully they weren't hurt, they are understandably distressed at what has happened.
'They are being looked after and specially trained officers have been deployed to support the victim's families in what is undoubtedly the most difficult of times.'
What a pity 'specially trained officers' weren't deployed to prevent the incident...
He added: 'We will carry out a full and thorough investigation and we will do all we can to achieve justice for the victim's families.'
'While this appears to be an isolated incident, there will be increased police activity in the area to provide the community with reassurance.
'Incidents like this are very rare... '
Incidents like this are getting more common, the community has no reason to feel reassured and 'justice' is often the very last thing that the system serves up for the families.
So...what's the point of you, again?
