Chandler PD: Father killed baby, self

A family gathering in Chandler ended in tragedy.

Police received a 911 about a shooting early Sunday morning from a home near Alma School and Ray Roads. Inside a car, they found a 25-year-old man dead along with this his three-month-old son who was sitting in his lap.

Detective Seth Tyler says when he got the call this morning the dispatcher was so upset she couldn’t talk to him.

“When I got on scene there were a number of officers that were struggling with this. You know, it’s not something you get used to, but it’s also very important to note that this is really about this family and our hearts go out to this family.”

Tyler says the baby’s mother was home along with other family members. He says they’re still interviewing family members and investigating whether drugs or alcohol were involved.
