Police say a man accused of abusing his teenager daughter shot her to death and killed her foster father, then committed suicide.

Authorities identified the gunman Monday as 34-year-old Christopher Milburn of Dyersburg, which is in northwest Tennessee.

A police news release says the attack happened Sunday night at the home where Milburn's 15-year-old daughter had been placed by the state Department of Children's Services while the abuse claim was investigated.

Police found the girl and her foster father, 46-year-old Todd Randolph, dead inside the home.

Randolph's wife, Susan, also was shot but survived. The 45-year-old woman was released Monday from a Memphis hospital.

Police found Milburn's body about a block away. He apparently died from a self-inflicted gunshot.
