FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) _ Authorities in Massachusetts say a man fatally shot his 6-year-old son before taking his own life.

Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey says Foxborough police received a 911 call at about 11:30 p.m. Thursday for a medical emergency.

Responders found 6-year-old Anthony Scaccia suffering from a single gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police also found 49-year-old William Scaccia Jr. dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Police found a gun and shell casings at the home.

Morrissey says the boy lived in the home with other family members but his father did not.

Foxborough Police Chief William Baker says his department had a history with the father, who had recently been denied a gun license by the chief.
