MERIDIAN, Idaho (AP) _ Police in Meridian in southwest Idaho say
an initial investigation appears to show that a 20-year-old man
shot and killed his infant son and then shot and killed himself.

Police say they entered the home about 8:30 p.m. Monday after no
one answered and that's when they found the bodies.

Ada County Coroner Erwin Sonnenberg identified the dead on
Tuesday as Nicholas D. Bacon and 8-month-old Bekm Bacon of
Meridian.

Police were called Monday by the man's 19-year-old wife and
mother of the child. She told police the man was suicidal and
homicidal. Officials say the couple had separated and were going
through a divorce.
