Grandfather Shoots & Kills Daughter and Granddaughter in South Seattle

Posted: Updated:
SEATTLE, WA- Seattle police say a grandfather fatally shot his adult daughter and a teenage granddaughter on Monday night at a south Seattle home, then killed himself. A 10-year-old boy was able to call 911. The child is unhurt.


Police say the boy called for help at about 8:30 p.m., saying his grandfather had waved a handgun at the two victims before shooting them. The boy said his grandfather then turned the gun on himself.


The grandfather was described as a man in his 60's.


Assistant Chief Nick Metz says the boy is "shaken up" but was able to escape the house unharmed and is now in the care of his extended family. Metz says it appears there were just four people in the house.


Seattle Mayor Ed Murray says it appears to be "a family tragedy" and adds that "the neighborhood itself is safe."
