West Town was the seen of a grisly double murder-suicide yesterday afternoon as a man apparently shot and killed his two sons before turning the gun on himself. Arturo Bahena, (age 72 according to the Trib but 76 according to the S-T), allegedly shot his sons Romeo, 44, and Rodolfo Bahena, 42, just before noon yesterday before then killing himself. The shootings took place at a property owned by Arturo, in the 1700 block of West Erie St., which was at the center of a bitter divorce battle between Bahena and his wife but police have not yet revealed any sort of motive behind the killings.
