CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a Tempe man who fatally shot his 3-year-old son in Chandler and then killed himself.
Police say 25-year-old Rajneesh Saini walked out of a family gathering early Sunday at a Chandler home and carried out the shootings in his parked vehicle.
They say the child was found on his father's lap. The name of the boy hasn't been released yet.
Chandler police spokesman Seth Tyler says investigators hadn't yet uncovered a motive for the murder-suicide.
Authorities say the family gathering was held at the home of a relative of the child's mother.
