ROWLETT, Texas (AP) — Authorities say a man fatally shot his 11-year-old son before killing himself in their suburban Dallas home.
Rowlett police spokesman Lt. David Nabors says no one else was home at the time of the shootings late Saturday night. Nabors says the man's wife, who is the child's stepmother, called 911 after the man called her and said he'd just shot the boy. Nabors says the next thing she heard was a gunshot and the call ended.
Nabors says the couple had previously been arguing about marital issues.
The Dallas County medical examiner identified the man as 40-year-old Policarpo Gonzalez-Flores.
More than 70 people gathered at a candlelight vigil Sunday night to honor the boy, James Gonzalez. His 19-year-old sister Alanna Bouvier called him her best friend.
