DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) - Police say a northwest Tennessee man
accused of abusing his teenager daughter shot her to death and killed her foster father before he committed suicide.
Authorities identified the gunman Monday as 34-year-old Christopher Milburn of Dyersburg.
A police news release says the attack happened about 7:30 p.m. Sunday at the home where Milburn's 15-year-old daughter had been
placed by the state Department of Children's Services while the abuse claim was investigated.
Police found the girl and 46-year-old Todd Randolph dead inside the home. Randolph's wife, Susan, also was shot but survived. The 45-year-old woman was released Monday from a Memphis hospital.
Police found Milburn's body about a block away. He apparently died from a self-inflicted gunshot.
