(SOURCE) — A man shot his three children, killing two, and then turned the gun on himself after an argument with his wife at their central Florida home early today, sheriff’s officials said.
David Mohney, 52; 11-year-old David Mohney; 14-year-old Savanna Mohney died in the shooting at the home just south of Daytona Beach, Volusia County Sheriff Ben Johnson said.
Lauren Mohney, 9, also was shot by her father and was taken to an Orlando hospital with critical injuries, Johnson said.
“It’s very tough,” Johnson said at a news conference outside the family’s home. “It’s basically a cowardly event. If he wants to commit suicide, let him commit suicide. To shoot the children, that’s cowardly.”
