Dad shoots two girls

The shooting occurred around 8:45 p.m. Wednesday in the 300 block of Wilkens Avenue on the South Side.
As police secured the scene, detectives arrived and neighbors gathered, the man's body lay dead on the front porch.
"I can't fathom why a father would do that to his children," McManus said.
The investigation was ongoing, but preliminary checks did not turn up any calls by police to the house previously.
As they lay bleeding on the porch, he turned the gun on himself, shot once in his own head, and died next to them.
