Two young Arizona children shot to death by father in murder/suicide

Two young children, ages 6 and 8, were gunned down by their father during New Year's Eve, before the father turned the gun on himself, in the Phoenix suburb of Tolleson.

From an article:
Police say Alejandro Gallardo, 45, killed the 6- and 8-year-old girls some time early Wednesday in the Phoenix suburb of Tolleson before he took his own life, the Arizona Republic reports. 
Cops learned of the killings about 10 a.m. Wednesday. 
Neighbors reported hearing fireworks as residents rang in the new year — blasts which may have masked the sounds of Gallardo's sickening slaughter. 
Other neighbors recalled past incidents of domestic violence between a man and a woman at the house. A young girl, of no certain relation to the dead, appears to have stumbled upon the carnage. 
"It was terrified screaming, she was screaming in Spanish over and over again," Brad Haltom told the Republic. "What I got is that she was crying over something. She was crying hysterically."
