Tolleson Father, 2 Daughters Found Dead In Home

TOLLESON, Ariz. (AP) — A father and his two young daughters have been found dead inside a home in the Phoenix suburb of Tolleson in what police are calling a murder-suicide.

Police cordoned off an area in the neighborhood on Wednesday after getting a call from a relative who found the bodies.

Tolleson Police Sgt. Obed Gaytan says the girls, ages 6 and 8, had been shot. Police identified the father as 45-year-old Alejandro Gallardo and said he died of a self-inflicted gunshot to the head.

Neighbors and those who work in the area told police they heard screaming coming from the home Wednesday morning.
