A suspect shot and killed two women at a southwest Miami-Dade home before turning the gun on himself Sunday evening, police said.
Officers responded just before 5 p.m. to a home at Southwest 129th Avenue and 191st Terrace after the suspect's father, who had been injured, went to a neighbor's house asking for help, Miami-Dade police said.
Police said that man had been shot by his son. The suspect also killed two women inside the home and then turned the gun on himself.
“We can confirm that it is domestic in nature, however, at this time we are waiting for our detectives to establish the familial ties," Det. Angel Rodriguez said.
Hostage negotiators also responded to the scene after attempting to make contact with the man. Hours later, police found the three people dead inside.
The suspect’s father was transported to Jackson Memorial South Hospital in stable condition.
According to detectives, two children were also inside the home when the shots were fired, but they were not injured and are safe.
Police haven't released the identities of the people who were involved.
"We’re not discarding the possibility that it was over a dispute however we’re not ruling out the possibility that it could have been something else. So detectives now have the undaunting task of figuring out piece by piece what took place at this residence," Rodriguez said.
