Dad kills kids and then himself

A 36-year-old man shot himself after killing his two children in Naturena, south of Johannesburg on Wednesday, police said.
Johannesburg police spokesperson Constable Mashudu Khaphathe confirmed the man had shot himself and his two children.

She did not have any further details. "They are still busy in the scene," she said. Netcare911 spokesperson Chris Botha said a father shot his two-year-old daughter and nine-year-old son at around 6.30pm, before turning the gun on himself.

All three were found dead by paramedics in a bedroom of their home in Daphne street. "The mother was not there at the time of the shooting," said Botha.
