Loretta Traynor, the children's mother and Chris's wife, was seriously injured in the Sept. 4 mass shooting.

A fourth child, Sam, wasn't home at the time of the incident but is now by his mother's side.

Police say the attacker, 48-year-old Mitchell Lapa of Winnipeg, was a relative of the family and an "uninvited person" to the home.

He died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 12, 2020.
