Man shoots daughter, foster father, himself

DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) — A northwest Tennessee man accused of abusing his teenage daughter shot her to death, police said Monday, and killed her foster father before turning the gun on himself.

Christopher Milburn, 34, also shot his 15-year-old daughter's foster mother during the Sunday rampage just down the street from where he lived. His daughter, whose name was not released, had been staying with the couple while the state Department of Children's Services investigated the abuse claim, authorities said.

Child services agency spokesman Rob Johnson described the couple as family friends of the teenager, but didn't elaborate on the abuse allegation.
