CHANDLER, AZ (CBS5) -

A Chandler father reportedly shot and killed his 3-month-old son and then turned the gun on himself in what police are calling an apparent murder-suicide.

Officers identified the man as Rajneesh Saini, 25, of Tempe.

When first responders arrived at a home in the 500 block of West Ivanhoe Street about 2 a.m. Sunday, they discovered Saini's body inside a vehicle, said Chandler police Detective Seth Tyler.

On his lap was the body of his 3-month-old boy, Tyler said.

Tyler said the pair had attended a family gathering at the home.  

The incident remains under investigation.
