911 call released in murder-suicide involving infant

Posted: Updated:
CHANDLER, Ariz. -

It's just a heartbreaking story. A valley man shoots and kills his 3-month-old son and then turns the gun on himself.

It happened during a family gathering in Chandler, and so far police have no motive. Now, we're hearing the 911 calls made following that shooting.

The 911 call was made by the grandfather of the baby as he was standing outside his Chandler home. His wife and daughter, the mother of the child, can be heard in the background. [Caution: Audio may be disturbing to some listeners]

With screaming in the background, the grandfather of a 3-month-old baby boy remained calm as he placed a 911 call from outside his Chandler home near Ray and Arizona Road around 2 a.m. Sunday.

Caller: "My daughter's husband killed himself and killed their child."

Operator: "Ok you need the fire department let me get them on the line, hold on ok."

Police say the man, identified as 25-year old Rajneesh Saini of Tempe, left a family gathering at the house, walked to the car, shot the baby and then himself. The child was found in the father's lap.

Operator: "You're positive they're both not alive? Do we know when this happened?"

Caller: "It just happened. They're inside the car right now. I'm keeping the car closed so nobody goes in it."

Operator: "Ok and they're both not breathing?"

Caller: "No yeah they're both gone."

Right now, police say there's no indication of a fight, excessive drinking or anything that led up to the murder-suicide.

Neighbors, hearing the screams, also call 911.

2nd Caller: "There's somebody screaming, we're from far up the street but somebody's yelling."

3rd Caller: "I hear screaming or something like they're in pain or something like that."

First responders arrived and told the grandfather to try to comfort his daughter. At the end of the call a woman can be heard pleading in the background.

"Oh please don't tell me that please don't tell me that!"

Chandler police are still investigating but say again, right now, there's no motive. Investigators say the autopsy was done today. They're waiting on toxicology results, which could take 6 weeks.

According to his online resume, Saini did quality checks on products at manufacturing companies. He described himself as highly-motivated, hardworking, sincere and dependable.
