    A 42-year-old man killed four family members Saturday night in a rural Oregon home before deputies arrived and killed him.

    Mark Leo Gregory Gago killed four people including a 9-month-old child using a sword and other similar weapons, according to Sgt. Brian Jensen with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.

    Authorities say Gago was attempting to kill a young girl when deputies arrived on scene and shot him.
    Authorities arrived at the scene around 10:15 p.m. after receiving multiple calls about a possible homicide.

    One of the female victims was found dead outside the residence, Jensen said. The rest were in the home.

    The girl and another survivor were taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

    The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office released the names of the victims as: Olivia Lynn Rose Gago, 9 months old; Shaina E. Sweitzer, 31; Jerry William Bremer, 66; and Pamela Denise Bremer, 64.

    Between 2001 and 2006, Gago had been charged in Multnomah County with two fourth-assault, speed racing on a highway, driving uninsured, according to court documents.

    He was charged with contempt of court in 2017 in Marion County.

    Gago's Facebook profile said he works as an in-home caregiver.

    They think he was high on meth? That's crazy! That's the area where they have the outlet stores and YDS and I always go clothes shopping.

    Lord, help those people. How horrible.

    relationships explained:

    Mark Leo Gregory Gago, 42, killed his parents, his girlfriend and their infant daughter on the night of Jan. 19 before deputies shot him, the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said.

    They found a woman dead outside the home and Gago attacking the child. The 8-year-old child was Sweitzer’s daughter from a previous relationship.

    A roommate also survived. She suffered what deputies described as injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening. She was being treated at a hospital.

    Gago had been arrested in August on a weapons charge. Jensen said by email that Gago was booked on a charge of unlawful possession of a weapon. He did not have details on the circumstances of the arrest or disposition of the case.

    This wasn't human. Couldn't be!

    “Female on the line that was at this location earlier said the male used an ax hammer on his mother,” a dispatcher says in a 911 recording obtained by KATU-TV.

    “Mark [Gago] was in the bedroom and did not have the gun at the time … This roommate said the mother is in the living room covered in blood,” the dispatcher says in the recording.

    The dispatcher also is heard saying in the recording, “We did hear somebody say, ‘He just broke her neck.'”

    The woman who fled the home ran to the neighbor’s house and claimed she got away from Gago who was armed with an “ax-type” weapon, the neighbor, who did not want to be identified, told KATU-TV.

    “It sounded like she was asleep in her bed and he woke her up by attacking her,” the neighbor said. “I’m sure it’ll be a few days until she realizes how lucky she was to get out.”

    Eight-Year-Old Girl Thanks Police For Saving Her From Mass Murderer

    Canby, OR – The eight-year-old girl who was saved by police as she was being strangled by her mother’s boyfriend on Saturday night said she is thankful for the law enforcement officers who came to rescue her when she needed them most.

    “Police officers, if you’re watching this, thank you,” Hailey Grimm said during an interview with KPTV.

    Hailey and 40-year-old Tracy Burbank were the only two survivors.

    Hailey’s mother, 31-year-old Shaina Sweitzer, and her baby sister, nine-month-old Olivia Gago, were among the four victims brutally slaughtered during the attack.

    Gago was Olivia’s father, according to police.

    He also murdered his mother, 64-year-old Pamela Bremer, and his stepfather, 66-year-old Jerry Bremer, inside the home, neighbors told KOIN.

    Hailey said Gago barged into her room with an ax, grabbed her by the hair with his bloodied hands, and threw her up against a wall, The Oregonian reported.

    He was speaking in riddles, then began strangling her, according to KPTV.

    “When [the police] came in my room, he yelled, ‘No!’’ she recounted.

    The officers opened fire, killing Gago, and saving the little girl.
