SEATTLE — Police said a 78-year-old man shot to death his adult daughter, his 11-year-old granddaughter and then killed himself in a south Seattle home Monday night.

The incident occurred in the 6300 block of South Fountain Street in south Seattle.

“Police received a call around 8:15 p.m. from a 10-year-old boy inside the home, who said his grandfather had brandished a handgun at the boy’s mother (39 years old) and sister before shooting them,” police said in a statement. “The boy told police his grandfather then turned the gun on himself as the boy fled the home and called 911.”

The boy wasn’t harmed, police said. Detectives and officers are investigating.
