A recently retired police officer shot and killed his two teenage daughters before killing himself at the family home in Harrison, N.Y., according to local news reports.

The bodies of retired White Plains, N.Y. police officer Glen Hochman, 52, and his daughters Alyssa, 17, and Deanna, 13, were found at the family home Saturday, according to WPTZ.

Hochman retired from the White Plains police force in January with distinction after more than 20 years of service.

“The White Plains Police Department is shocked and horrified by the news of this unfathomable tragedy,” said White Plains Police Commissioner David Chong in a statement Saturday. “We can only pray for the entire Hochman family.”
