NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas (AP) — A surgeon has been identified as the 36-year-old man police believe fatally shot his two young children before killing himself in the family’s North Texas home.

Officials Tuesday identified the man as Dr. Christopher Dawson, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. Police are calling the Saturday deaths in North Richland Hills a murder-suicide.

The Tarrant County medical examiner’s office said Dawson fatally shot himself. The deaths of 9-year-old Luke Dawson and 5-year-old Aubrey Dawson were ruled homicides. Both children died from gunshot wounds.

Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Waxahachie records show Christopher Dawson was employed there from Sept. 4 to Oct. 20. Hospital officials did not comment on why Dawson left.

Police have said there had been no previous calls from the house.

The children’s mother was home but wasn’t injured.
