Henderson Police: Man kills ex-wife, then himself

Fatal shooting

A man shot and killed his ex-wife Tuesday with their teenage son in the next room before turning the gun on himself in an apparent suicide, Henderson Police said.

Police received a call about 5:30 p.m. from a 13-year-old boy calling for help. When officers arrived, they found his 47-year-old mother shot to death in the house in the 100 block of Andada Drive, near Horizon Ridge Parkway and Arroyo Grande Boulevard, police said. The boy’s father, a 54-year-old Henderson man, was found dead in his car in front of the house, police said.

The man and the woman also have an 11-year-old boy. Both boys were unharmed.
