Kenneth Ayers Kills 2 Year Old Son, Michael Ayers, Wounds Estranged Wife, in Apparent Murder-Suicide

Another innocent child was killed when a central Pennsylvania father, Kenneth Ayers, shot his two year old son. Michael Ayers, and wounded his estranged wife, Hollie Jo Ayers, during a custody exchange before committing suicide.

Kenneth Ayers had reportedly gone to his mother’s home, near Petersburg, on Saturday to exchange custody, and an argument ensued. He shot his estranged wife in the legs, right arm and face, then killed their son. The woman had obtained an order of protection against her husband.  He even shot at his mother, Mary Olive Ayers, but missed.

His body was found several hours later in his truck in a wooded area in Warriors Mark Township. He died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. This is another senseless murder of a child.
