PHOENIX — Two children are in stable condition on Sunday after they were shot by their father, who then killed himself, authorities said.

The victims entered the hospital in extremely critical condition after they were shot near Arizona Avenue and Queen Creek Road on Saturday night, the Chandler Police Department said in a press release.

A police spokesman said the mother and the two children were home Saturday night when the husband arrived unannounced at the house where he does not reside.

Police said a domestic violence incident occurred after he arrived, which resulted in the father shooting the two children before taking his own life.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene while the unidentified mother was not injured.

According to police, the mother called 911 after the shootings.

Police said there was a history of domestic violence between the couple, but didn’t release any details.
