    SCOTTSDALE -- A father reportedly shot his two children and then himself at a Scottsdale home Wednesday morning.

    According to Scottsdale police Officer David Pubins, at approximately 8 a.m. a man called 911 and said he had shot his child.

    When police officers arrived at the home near Lincoln Drive and Scottsdale Road, they forced entry and found two small children dead from apparent gunshot wounds.

    Pubins said the 39-year-old father also shot himself. He was transported to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries and is expected to survive.

    No one else was home at the time of the shootings. The mother came back to the scene and is being helped by a crisis management team.

    There is no information on the ages of the children.

    Police do not know the motive for the shootings.

    Detectives are expected to be on scene throughout the day as the investigation continues.

    One of the most dangerous political philosophies afflicting America today is the belief that we can’t allow anyone to suffer the natural consequences of their own stupidity.

    Put the scumbag on a dormitory with Bubba and Leroy from the Outlaws motorcycle gang. They will take care of the baby killer.

    w-t-h.

    Would have been nice if momma bear showed up and gave poppa bear one for the road. But bending over in jail for the rest of his life shall suffice. Then again, nothing can make up for what this guy did...

    By the time he lawyer's up, he will be blaming the same drug crazed hippies that Jeffrey McDonald blames.

    This is a real shame!

    I don't think he'll last very long in jail, people who mistreat children have a very rough time in prision.

    So, he kills his kids and then chickens out on himself. Hand a gun to the wife and give her 30 mintues and total immunity. Why do stupid people do this stuff.... the kids never hurt anyone.... if they want to go, go ... but don't take other people or kids along with them.

    there are no words for this....... or this guy.

    SCOTTSDALE -- A father reportedly shot his two children and then himself at a Scottsdale home Wednesday morning.

    According to Scottsdale police Officer David Pubins, at approximately 8 a.m. 39-year-old Andre Leteve called 911 and said he had shot his child.

    When police officers arrived at the home near Lincoln Drive and Scottsdale Road, they forced entry and found two small boys dead from apparent gunshot wounds. The kids ages are reportedly 5 years old and 15 months old.

    Pubins said the father also shot himself. He was transported to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries and is expected to survive.

    3TV has learned Leteve was going through a divorce. Both he and his wife had completed parent education classes and were scheduled to appear in court on April 19.

    The mother of the children reportedly had plans to take the kids out of state for a vacation and Leteve was attempting to stop those plans.

    Having been through a DIVORCE with children I can understand his frustration.
    But not his anger of taking it out on his kids.
    I know it's hell on earth when your world crashes down, but why punish the children?


    If he had wanted to hurt the wife, then take off and start a new life, leaving her with the bills or something. But Murder is never going to fix it. His kids trusted him!

    I made DAMN sure my kids knew I loved them even though we wern't a Family anymore. They never needed for anything. I protected my kids the best I could from the pain brought on by the divorce. They were my priority for 11 years while they grew up.
    That was my job. To Protect them.

    ****, I can't say anymore! I'm too pissed at this COWARD MFer.

    What a coward. he should have at least the decency to shoot himself properly. I feel awful for the kids.

    I never heard of anyone needing 2 bullets to commit suicide, but his wife should have left him a full box to keep trying until he got it right.
