Sheriff: Children's Mother, Grandmother Shot to Death by Father

WEBSTER COUNTY, Mo.-- Law enforcement in Webster County is investigating a shooting that killed two women and sent a man to the hospital.

The location is on Pleasant Church Road near Marshfield.

Webster County Sheriff Roye Cole says that a family get together was going on when a domestic dispute broke out over a custody battle.

Two women were shot and killed. One of them is believed to be the mother of three children ages two, five, and nine and the other victim is believed to be their grandmother.

Another family member was also shot, but his condition is unknown at this time.

All three children were present at the time of the shooting, but none of them were hurt.

Sheriff Cole later arrested the children's father after he called 911 to turn himself in.

Sheriff Roye Cole said, "They're doing as well as they can I guess would be the best way to put it. One of the children was with the suspect when I picked him up."

 The suspect and children are still being interviewed.

Charges will be filed Wednesday morning and KOLR10 will bring updates as we learn more.
