Three Nassau County children are now without parents.
Investigators with the Sheriff's Office tell us 53-year-old Adel Hbaba used a rifle to shoot his wife, 42-year-old Aline Hbaba, before turning the gun on himself. The couple was found around 10:30 this morning in the Pine Street home they share with their children and Aline’s mother.
Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper tells WOKV there have been no prior calls to the home, but they are still investigating any possible motive.
“Interviewing family members, neighbors to determine if there are any domestic issues in the past,” Leeper says.
The couple’s 14- and 11-year-old sons and 6-year-old daughter were at school at the time of the incident. Leeper says they are now in the custody of Aline’s mother, who found the couple this morning.
