SEATTLE -

Seattle police say a grandfather fatally shot his adult daughter and a teenage granddaughter on Monday night at a south Seattle home, then killed himself. A 10-year-old boy was able to call 911. The child is unhurt.

Police say the boy called for help at about 8:30 p.m., saying his grandfather had waved a handgun at the two victims before shooting them. The boy said his grandfather then turned the gun on himself.

The grandfather was described as a man in his 60s.

Police officials and Mayor Ed Murray rushed to the scene on South Fountain Street.

Murray says it appears to be "a family tragedy" and adds that "the neighborhood itself is safe."
