NEW YORK, N.Y. (AP) — Police say two women and a 7-year-old girl have been shot dead and a 12-year-old girl critically wounded at a home in New York City. Investigators are seeking a suspect in what they believe was a case of domestic violence.
A relative says the women were the mother and grandmother of the girls and the suspect is the girls’ father.
Police have identified the suspect as 34-year-old Jonathon Walker. They say he fled the home in an SUV and was believed to be carrying a .45-caliber gun.
Police say officers responding to the predawn shootings in Queens found the two women and the 7-year-old dead of gunshot wounds to their heads. The 12-year-old was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
