Police say a distraught father fatally shot two of his children before turning the gun on himself during a domestic dispute in Miami Lakes Tuesday night.
The unidentified man killed his 12-year-old daughter and 9-year-old son around 9:30 p.m. outside their Miami Lakes apartment complex, according to police.
The suicidal killer spared his ex-wife, who showed up at the home after the shooting and tried to revive her already dead children, according to reports.
