Mom, 2 kids slain
Nine-year-old girl escapes ordeal to call police
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Crime Reporter
A terrified, barefoot nine-year-old girl frantically knocked on neighbours' doors to get help for her mother and two siblings held hostage yesterday by a man inside an east London home.
By the time gunfire subsided at 682 Princess Ave., four people were dead, two police officers were shot and a city was in shock over the slayings of a woman, her 13-year-old daughter and five-year-old son.
Police didn't identify the victims yesterday.
But relatives confirmed that Halina CZUBA, her 13-year-old daughter, Julia, and five-year-old son, Michal, died after gunfire erupted at their house just east of Adelaide Street about 2: 30 a.m.
The body of a man also was found inside the home. The province's Special Investigations Unit said the man, who hasn't been identified, died of a gunshot wound.
Halina's husband, Jan, is a trucker who was in the United States at the time of the deadly shooting.
"Jan is just devastated. He's in shock," Dominik SZYMANSKI, a relative who tutored the children, said yesterday. "They were all bright kids. It's just unbelievable that this could happen."
What happened inside the house is still a mystery.
"This is a very large tragedy, the details of which will unfold in the days to come," Const. Jeff ARBING said.
The couple's third child, nine-year-old Joanna CZUBA, knocked on at least three neighbours' houses trying to help her family.
"She knocked on our door, it was a panicked knock," said a neighbour, who didn't give her name.
When the woman's husband went outside to check who was at the door, he saw Joanna with neighbours.
The child called 911 at 2: 25 a.m. to report someone was beating her mother.
Two minutes later, two police officers approached the front door when a shotgun blast from inside blew a hole through it, striking one officer in the shoulder and arm and grazing another officer's face.
The officers returned fire, the Special Investigations Unit said.
It's unclear whether the unidentified man died of a self-inflicted gunshot or from the exchange with police.
Joanna and the neighbours were still outside when shots were fired and police ordered them into the neighbour's Elizabeth Street house.
Joanna was petrified but unhurt, the neighbour said.
"I took her in the kitchen, sat her down and rubbed her back," the woman said. "She saw what (the gunman) was doing to her mom."
Joanna didn't recognize the gunman, the woman said.
Neighbour Ron HARPER said he heard a sharp knock on his door about 2: 30 a.m., but didn't think much of it.
"Then I heard five shots and someone yell, 'I'll kill them all,' " he said.
When HARPER looked outside, he saw police hitting the house with a battering ram.
"The next thing I know, I saw them (the officers) running back with two kids. They were pretty limp," he said.
"When they put them in the ambulances, the ambulances didn't leave right away so I don't think they made it."
Dan and Tammy STROM were sleeping when police pounded on their door and used the location to monitor the brown brick bungalow across the street.
Heavily armed tactical officers told the couple and their two frightened children to go to the basement and keep their heads down, Dan STROM said.
"It was a little nerve-wracking," he said. "The police were in and out and then I heard, 'Freeze! London police."
A 13-year veteran and rookie with one year on the force were injured by the shotgun blast. The constables were taken to hospital and later released.
"They were shaken, but relieved," police Chief Murray FAULKNER said of the officers' families. "This is one of these situations where as a husband, wife or partner of a police officer, you dread the call."
The Special Investigations Unit was called in to investigate the man's death. London police are investigating the homicides of the woman and her two children.
Neither the Special Investigations Unit or London police were releasing many details about the four deaths.
"You have to understand this was not the usual man-with-a-gun call," FAULKNER said. "Police entered because we are sworn to protect life, so that's why the incident wrapped up quicker than normal."
Police have been to the address before, sources confirmed, but would not say why.
Dan STROM said his neighbours, the CZUBAs, were a quiet, friendly Polish family who didn't speak much English. They had lived at the house for about 15 years.
Besides the shot officers, two tactical officers were treated for smoke inhalation after a small fire, believed to be arson, broke out.
London police called in counsellors to speak to colleagues of the injured officers, FAULKNER said.
All day a London detective worked alongside an Special Investigations Unit investigator, carefully documenting the scene. Blood marks could be seen on the front porch. Some windows of the home were shattered.
Just before 9 a.m., a detective and uniformed officer brought out the family's pet -- a trembling dachshund puppy.
Police evacuated homes one street north of Princess on Elias Street. Neighbours were told it was because of a gas leak and saw Union Gas on scene.
