Dutch policemen kill his kids before shooting self

A Dutch police deputy shot and murdered his two juvenile children and himself at a residence in the capital of Dordrecht on Monday evening, a policeman told.

The 34-year-old policeman also shot and severely injured his 28-year-old wife, told police spokeswoman Miriam Slot. The kids were aged 8 and 12, she told.

Emergency response units were at the scene, a residence in Dordrecht, near the port of Rotterdam and forensics units, were also present.

Dordrecht Mayor Wouter Kolff declared on Twitter he was plotting to visit the site of the “very severe shooting incident”.
