PUYALLUP DOUBLE SHOOTING:  A 69 year old man was arrested after shooting his son and daughter as they slept in their home located in the 1500 block of 5th Street SE in Puyallup, Wash., early Sunday morning. Police responded to the home at about 3:30 a.m. after receiving a call from the father.

Police found two gravely injured victims once they entered the home — one upstairs and the other, downstairs. The victims were taken to Tacoma General Hospital where the daughter was pronounced deceased. The man’s son is on life support.

Two children, ages 6 and 7, as well as the shooting suspect’s wife, were found inside the home. They were unhurt. All three were removed from the home.
