Father kills son, 9, and himself at New Hampshire YWCA

“A man shot his 9-year-old son to death and then killed himself at a YWCA in New Hampshire on Sunday morning, officials said.

Police got a call about 10 a.m. that a gunman was inside the New Hampshire YWCA building in Manchester, police Lt. Maureen Tessier said. More people called the police later reporting shots fired, she said.

When officers arrived, they searched the building and found two bodies in a supervised parental visitation room at the center, according to the New Hampshire attorney general’s office.

New Hampshire Senior Assistant Attorney General Jeffery A. Strelzin identified the father as Muni Savyon, 54, and his son as Joshua Savyon, 9.
Sayvon shot his son with a handgun halfway through an hour-long supervised visit at the YWCA, then turned the gun on himself, according to the attorney general’s office.

The supervising counselor fled the room unharmed, according to the attorney general.

Tessier said police searched the building and found no further threats and no one else injured.

Rabbi Levi Krinsky of the Manchester Chabad-Lubavich synongogue told NBC News that Savyon and his son “came to a lot of the events that we do.” He said Savyon had been part of the Orthodox congregation in Manchester for more than five years, and he considered Savyon a friend.

He was a “very quiet person, very reserved,” Krinsky said. He said that Savyon recently returned from a trip to Israel, where his brother had died unexpectedly from a heart attack.

“He was very upset and depressed,” Krinsky said, but “we didn’t know he was capable of that. If we did, we would have stepped in.”

According to the attorney general’s office, Manchester police detectives have discovered that Savyon made threats in the past “to kill himself, his son’s mother and their son.”

Krinsky said Savyon and his wife were separated. Joshua was their only child, and both parents used services offered by the YWCA, Krinsky said.”

This is heartbreaking! We send our prayers to Joshua’s family.
