The suspect was the mother’s estranged boyfriend and the father of the child. According to Lt. Dan McGrath, the father forced his way into the home and proceeded to bind the mother and child’s hands with plastic zip ties.

He stabbed both victims multiple times before turning the weapon on himself. Police said the grandmother of the boy was also in the home.

She called 9-1-1 and with a neighbor’s assistance was able to board the victims into a vehicle, police said. The grandmother drove to Southern Hills hospital where the child was later pronounced deceased.

The mother was later taken University Medical Center in critical condition, police said.

Responding police units believed the suspect was still alive and in the home prompting a short barricade situation, said McGrath.

K-9 units entered the home where the body of the estranged father was found inside a restroom with apparent self-inflicted stab wounds.

An investigation is ongoing.

The Trauma Intervention Program said in a tweet that a volunteer is heading to the scene to provide support.
