MCSO: The boy from Litchfield Park shoots and kills grandma, then himself | Arizona News



LITCHFIELD PARK, AZ (3TV / CBS 5) – An 11-year-old boy shot and killed his grandmother before dumping the gun after being ordered to clean up after him on Saturday in Litchfield Park, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

Doyle Hebert and his wife Yvonne Woodard had asked the boy all day to clean his room, since he would not do it in the Litchfield area and in the schools of the School of India, the sergeant. Joaquín Enríquez with MCSO said.

While the couple was watching television, the boy appeared behind them and shot Woodard in the back of the head just after 5 pm, according to Enriquez.

Hebert said he ran after his grandson, but then returned with his 65-year-old wife, where he tried to help her.

That was when he heard another shot and saw his grandson take a few steps and then fall to the ground, according to Enriquez.

The pistol belonged to Hebert and the couple had full custody of the child, Enriquez said.

MCSO said there were no previous indications that the boy hurt anyone or himself.

An investigation is ongoing.
