KABUL: (Middle East Press) A recently retired US police officer has fatally stabbed and shot his two daughters and his dog before turning the gun on himself in White Plains, Westchester County, New York.
The man was identified as Glen Hochman 50 year old, who shot dead his two daughters; Alissa, 17 and Deanna, 13, and then killed himself on Saturday in their home in Adelphi Avenue, Harrison, a town about 15 miles northeast of New York City.
Police found Hochman lying dead in the garage from a gunshot wound to the head.
His wife, Anamarie, 50, and his third and oldest daughter, Samantha, were not home at the time of the shooting.
Every year, more than 30,000 people are shot and killed in the United States. The US averages 87 deaths each day as a function of gun violence, with an average of 183 injured, according to the University of Chicago Crime Lab and the Centers for Disease Control.
