A Colorado man is facing murder charges for allegedly killing his 8-month-old son and the baby’s mother last week.

According to KCNC, David Weingarten, 29, fatally shot his infant son, George Weingarten, and his son’s mother, Lizet Salinas, 26, on February 1 in Colorado Springs. The couple’s 2-year-old daughter was at the residence but unharmed.

Police responding to reports of a medical emergency discovered the crime scene. David Weingarten was reportedly at the residence and spoke to first responders.

“I just shot my wife and son. I’ve been feeling not good lately and something just came over me. I don’t know what happened. I’ve been hearing things, and I don’t know what’s going on,” he stated, according to KCNC.

KKTV reported that David Weingarten also claimed the baby’s crying made him anxious.

According to KCNC, the victim’s family said they were concerned and had filed police reports prior to last week’s shooting. However, the nature of those police reports was not disclosed.

Weingarten remains jailed on suspicion of first-degree murder.
