Parents Dead, Toddler Gravely Wounded in Alleged Murder-Suicide

A toddler is in intensive care and her parents are dead in what Vallejo police are calling an apparent murder-suicide.

Authorities say the 2-year-old girl's father shot her and her 38-year-old mother Friday night before turning the gun on himself.

The couple's 10-year-old son escaped uninjured and called police.

The victims' names have not been released.

The 41-year-old father was taken to the hospital after police arrived, where he was pronounced dead. The mother was pronounced dead at the scene.

The toddler, who was shot in the head, was airlifted to Children's Hospital in Oakland.

The mother's death was Vallejo's 16th homicide of the year.
