Daniel B. Shell along with his sister Chante A. Shell was fatally shot by their father before turning the gun on himself. After arguing last week with his wife, police said, he shot his son Daniel, 12, and daughter Chante, 8. The boy was pronounced dead at the scene. The girl died the next day at Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters.Shell would have faced murder counts had he recovered, police said.Last Monday night, Shell's wife, Liz Marie, left their home on Colin Drive when her husband brandished a weapon, according to Liz Shell's brother. She called to Daniel and Chante to come with her, he said, but their father told them to stay.Neighbors said they heard two gunshots around 9:30 p.m. and another around 2 a.m. Police tried for more than six hours that night to communicate with Cedric Shell in the house. But by the time they entered, around 3:45 a.m. last Tuesday, it was too late to save the children.
