Miami Police Say Father Killed Daughter and Then Himself







Police say a man fatally shot his 11-year-old child and himself and wounded two other adults in an evening shooting in northeastern Oklahoma.

Police say in a statement that David Billings and his child were found dead Tuesday night in a home in western Miami. The OSBI says it was his 11-year-old daughter.



Police say officers responded to reports of gunfire at the home about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday and found Melissa Wallace wounded outside the home of James Miller. Miller was found wounded inside the home where the bodies of Billings and his daughter were also discovered.

Police say Wallace is the boy’s mother and the ex-wife of Billings and that she was in a relationship with Miller. Police say both Billings and Miller were hospitalized in stable condition Wednesday.
