Staten Island, NY, United States (NewsBahn) – A Pennsylvania man suspected in the murder of his wife reportedly shot and killed himself after taking off for Staten Island with their two sons.
The pair of boys, ages 4 and 6, were unharmed in the incident.
Police haven’t said where the man, Keith Belajonas, took his own life. Earlier, Belajonas tried to rob a CVS store where one of his relatives was an employee, according to NBC Philadelphia.
He had fled his Drexel Hill home after neighbors heard fighting and the sound of a gunshot.
“One of the children states, ‘Is mommy dead? Is mommy dead?’ and out the door they go,” Upper Darby Township Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood told NBC Philadelphia.
Police later found the woman dead with a gunshot wound to the head and several stab wounds.
