NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Investigators say a man shot a 10-year-old girl and her mother before turning the gun on himself over the weekend in Norfolk.

Following a preliminary investigation, police identified the suspect as Nathan. L. White II, 35, of Norfolk. They say he shot the girl and her mother before shooting himself.
A police spokesman confirmed White was Mack’s boyfriend.
