BROOKLYN (PIX11) – A man allegedly stabbed his father to death, slashed his sister then killed himself, possibly by hurling himself off of his apartment, police said Tuesday.
Officers responded about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday to a home in the 1000 block of Ocean View Avenue to find a bloody scene.
Voclodymyr Yeushchenko, 59, was found lifeless on the floor of his apartment suffering from a stab wound to his neck, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Not far away, officers responded to Brighton Beach and Coney Island avenues to find Yeushchenko’s 29-year-old daughter suffering from stab wounds to her back, wrist and forehead.
Yeushchenko’s son with whom he shared an apartment – identified as 30-year-old Kostyantyn Proskurnyak – was found outside of their building on the sidewalk suffering from severe trauma to his body, likely due to a fall, police said.
Proskurnyak, who is suspected of having attacked his father and sister, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
An NYPD spokesman said police are probing the grisly scene as a murder-suicide and are not looking for any subjects in the case, though the investigation is ongoing.
