"Particularly when it involves children, as well as being on Christmas Day", he said.
A woman and two young children have died after being found unconscious on a sidewalk near a Boston parking garage on Christmas Day. The objective of Thursday's press conference was to provide the identities of the individuals, Rollins said, emphasizing that the investigation is in its early stages. They were rushed to a Boston hospital where they were later pronounced dead.
"Sadly, our investigation is showing that the two children fell first, and then the parent after", Rollins told Bob Oakes on WBUR's "Morning Edition" earlier Thursday.
"Today is a tragedy", Gross said, according to the Associated Press.
Gross called the situation a "tragedy" and vowed that officers would "do everything in our power to find out everything we can about this death investigation".
"I don't know what else needs to happen in order for this to be handled and taken more seriously", Rollins said of the security procedures at the garage.

Its telescope will focus on bright stars to determine the size of planets as they pass in front of their host star. The primary objective of the CHEOPS satellite is to observe various important aspects of exoplanets.
"On Christmas and in the holiday season, when many people are celebrating, it can be a challenging and hard time, but I feel it imperative that we let people know that there is help", Rollins said. In May, a former Boston College student jumped to his death from the same garage.
"Three patients were given the best possible care we could provide, but it was not enough to save their lives", Michael MacNeil, president of the Boston Police Patrolmen's Association EMS Division, said in a statement. His girlfriend, Inyoung You, is being charged with involuntary manslaughter.
Detectives have been seen looking through a black SUV that was parked on the roof across two spaces near a wall that runs along the edge of the garage, as seen in a photo published by WHDH. The area will remain restricted, "until a permanent solution is implemented".
The identity, age and relationships of the three victims has not been released.
They are also appealing to those who may have any other useful information to contact investigators through a tip line.
