Police say a woman shot and killed her husband and two daughters, and then tried to kill herself Monday night in the Tacony section of Philadelphia. Police were called to the home around 10 p.m. after a next-door neighbor reported hearing gunshots.
Police say the 28-year-old mother killed her 10-month-old and 4-year-old daughters. The woman’s 38-year-old husband was also shot and killed, according to police.
Acting Philadelphia Police Commissioner Christine Coulter described the shooting as an attempted murder-suicide. Medics rushed the mother to the hospital where she is in critical condition.
