LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles authorities have released the name of a man who killed his two young children, wounded his wife and killed himself during a domestic dispute.
Police say 31-year-old Jorge Cruz Iraheta was under a court order to stay away from his wife when he went to a Silver Lake home last night.
Officers got a report of domestic violence report and went to the home, then left to seek Iraheta at another address. Reports of shots and screams at the Silver Lake home brought them back less than an hour later.
Police say Iraheta shot his wife, Marta, in the leg and then killed his 7-year-old daughter, Ashley, and 9-year-old son, Andres.
His 35-year-old wife is hospitalized in stable condition.
