Associated Press Release

BROOKSVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Days after his wife filed for divorce, authorities say a north Florida man fatally shot his young children before killing himself.

The shootings happened sometime over the weekend in the Spring Hill home of 39-year-old Daniel Castrillon-Oreggo.

Hernando County Sheriff Al Nienhuis says the father picked up 7-year-old Sebastian and 8-year-old Susana from school on Friday afternoon. He took them to visit their mother, Luz Jimenez, at her job.

The sheriff says the parents argued there, but the father calmed down and left with the kids for a planned weekend visit. Their mother had planned to pick up the children Saturday for a birthday party but couldn't reach her husband. She went to the house several times and on Sunday evening called police. They were found dead inside.
