A California man was found dead with his 3-year-old son on Wednesday night in their family home. Currently, police believe that the incident was a murder-suicide.
Orange County sheriff’s deputies arrived at the home around 6:10 p.m. They were responding to a hang-up call from someone inside. However, when they entered the house, they were greeted by the man’s wife, who informed the police that her husband had barricaded himself inside of one of the rooms.
Authorities tried to talk to the man through the door, but the conversation broke down, and two shots echoed through the halls.
A SWAT team broke into the room and discovered the 41-year-old man and his 3-year-old son dead with a handgun nearby.
The woman and her 18-month-old daughter were unharmed.
