UPDATE: Police Say Presque Isle Man Killed Son, then Himself
Police continue to investigate a domestic homicide-suicide in Presque Isle early Sunday that left a father and his 14-month-old son dead.
Maine Public Safety Department spokesman Steve McCausland says 35-year-old Matthew Leavitt shot his child before turning the gun on himself. This happened after officers were called to a home at 728 Reach Road Saturday night.
Autopsies conducted by the State Medical Examiner's Office determined that both father and son died from a single gunshot wound.
State Police detectives finished gathering evidence Monday at Leavitt's home on the Reach Road in Presque Isle.
