REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(DC) At house once owned by Kareem Abdul Jabbar (Lou Alcindor) 5 children, ages 9 days to 11 years, murdered. 2 adults also murdered. 4 children drowned, rest shot. Murders maybe result of feud between warring Muslim sects. [DC Police Captain A. F. DiGENNARO - says worst crime he's ever seen.] 2 women wounded but alive. [Father of 1 woman Dr. Reginald HAWKINS - says was afraid something like this would happen.] Kareem Abdul Jabbar says murderers must be lunatics. Disregards religious war murder theory.
REPORTER: Hal Walker (WTOP-TV newsfilm)
