Tragedy strikes a Tucson family after two little girls are killed by their father in a murder-suicide attempt.  Sheriff Chris Nanos with the Pima County Sheriff’s Office says a 9-1-1 call in from a distraught mother who claimed her estranged husband threatened the lives of their two young children. Within minutes of the 9-1-1

call, deputies arrived at the father’s home who refused to open the door.  Deputies heard a single gunshot and broke down the door to gain entry.  Deputies discovered two little girls with gunshot wounds.  The seven-year-old girl was pronounced dead at the scene and the five-year-old girl died at the hospital. The father had a gunshot wound to the head and was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
