Estranged Arizona Husband Kills Daughters, Shoots Self
December 24, 2015

This won't be the last one this holiday weekend. But it always happens at Christmas, when the pressures of dissolving families increase -- which is why I believe any separating couple should have their guns put in escrow for a few years:

A father shot dead his two young daughters before apparently turning a gun on himself in Arizona, police said late Wednesday.

The Pima County Sherrif's Department said in a statement that a mother called 911 on Wednesday evening to report "a threatening phone call from her estranged husband" who had their daughters.

Deputies dispatched to his residence and "attempted to talk to a male inside" but shortly after heard a single gunshot, the sheriff's department said.

"Inside, they found the father and two daughters, all with gunshot wounds," according to the statement.
