A father was pronounced dead on Saturday night after shooting his two children and himself during an unannounced visit to the children's home in Chandler.
The father had been identified by police on Sunday morning as 52-year-old Derek Aaron Tighe.
The two children and their mother resided at the Chandler house near Queen Creek and Alma School roads where the incident occurred.
The Chandler Police Department determined that the mother and two children were home when Tighe, who does not live at the house, arrived unannounced.
A domestic violence incident occurred after his arrival, which resulted in Tighe shooting his two children before fatally shooting himself.
The mother was not injured, and the two children are in stable condition and expected to survive, according to an update from police Sunday morning.
The Chandler Police Department confirmed that Tighe and the mother had a history of domestic violence incidents.
