Very sad. I heard reports that the YWCA is routinely used for court-ordered supervised visitation. You'd think they could somehow restrict gun ownership from someone who's made death threats to his child before -- or at least have gun detectors at the Y:
MANCHESTER, N.H. -- A Manchester man shot and killed his young son and then himself at the YWCA here this morning, according to authorities.
Muni Savyon, 54, shot his 9-year-old son, Joshua Savyon, several times during a supervised visitation, authorities said.
Manchester Police detectives “have been able to determine that Muni Savyon has been separated from his son’s mother for several years. The relationship has been contentious at times and included threats by Muni Savyon to kill himself, his son’s mother and their son,” according to a statement released by New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph A. Foster and Manchester Police Chief David J. Mara.
The boy lived in Amherst, N.H., the statement said.
The Manchester YWCA offers child custody exchanges and supervised child visitation, according to its website.
An adult male counselor was in the room with the father and son and escaped without injury, according to authorities.
Shortly after 10 a.m. today police, including a SWAT team, responded to a 911 call reporting a gunman inside the YWCA, searched the building, and found “two deceased persons,” according to Lieutenant Maureen Tessier, a spokeswoman for the Manchester Police Department.
