Police in Florida, said that the incident occurred after the father got into an argument with his girlfriend at 1:20 a.m.

According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, Timothy Hollis, 32, and the mother of his children, Lashunda Bowers, 34, were driving to his relative’s home in Dania Beach, where they got into an argument.

The father grabbed his gun and shot his children before turning the gun on himself.

Holli and his one-year-old daughter Kalila, died at the scene. Their bodies were found lying on the sidewalk.
