    "Ferguson moved into the Watertown home with Della and Sterling Jette and their mother, Danielle Jette, about two weeks ago, police said in a statement. Watertown Police Chief John Gavallas said at a press conference that an argument took place before the shootings. Ferguson shot his girlfriend’s children before barricading himself in his bedroom and fatally shooting himself before police arrived, Gavallas said."

    Yet ANOTHER boyfriend/annihilator! SMH:mad::(

    Those poor children must have been terrified!

    “Ferguson shot Sterling Jette when he tried to intervene, Gavallas said. Sterling was shot in the leg. Ferguson then chased Della onto the back deck of the home and shot her in the chest as Della’s mother called 911, according to Gavallas. Ferguson went back into the home and shot Sterling Jette in the chest, police said. He then went into the master bedroom and fatally shot himself in the head. Ferguson was found dead when officers, Gavallas said.”

    A heartbreaking story out of #Watertown, a brother and sister shot and killed in a senseless act of violence. This morning the candles at their makeshift memorial are still burning

    An argument between a Connecticut teenager and her mother’s boyfriend over his smoking in the house turned deadly after the man shot the 15-year-old and her 16-year-old brother on Tuesday night and then killed himself, according to the Watertown Police Department.

    Paul W. Ferguson, 42, was pronounced dead at the scene from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, police said in the news release.

    Two Connecticut teens killed by mother’s boyfriend after argument over cigarette smoke, police say

    This story is unreal. The loss this woman is feeling... her babies are gone, hurt by who she let into their home. Both her partners fatally shot themselves in the same house just three years apart? What a terrifying situation, it’s all just so much loss I can’t even fathom
