Utah Dad Kills Himself and 6-Year-Old Son in Murder-Suicide

A 34-year-old Utah man shot his 6-year-old son to death and then killed himself in Salt Lake City on Saturday.

Police said they were contacted at about 10:30 a.m. about a possible death, KUTV reported, although they did not say who contacted them.

Officers found Samuel Owen and the young boy, whose name won’t be released because of his age, dead at the scene.

Investigators have not released a motive for the murder-suicide and didn’t say anything about the boy’s mother. The department’s homicide squad is leading the investigation.
