A father became drunk and threatened to kill his children after his wife dumped him for cheating on her with another woman, according to police in the United Kingdom.

Cambridgeshire police said that they were called to the home of 41-year-old Richard Davies, after he tied up his three children and threatened to kill them with a knife.

The incident began one morning, when his wife Samantha, told him that their 20 year marriage was over due to his infidelity.

Davies drank alcohol for many hours after his wife left him home alone with the children. Davies became extremely intoxicated and he tied up his children.

He covered their mouths with duct tape, and pulled out a knife.

One of the children managed to jump out of a window and called for help.

Police officers who arrived at the scene, called on Davies to surrender, but he appeared at a window and fired six shots at them.

When Davies appeared at another window, several police officers shot at the father. Police then broke into the home, and found Davies unconscious on the floor.

He died as a result of a single gunshot wound to the chest. The three children were not injured.
