MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire officials say a father shot his 9-year-old son to death before taking his own life during supervised visitation at a YWCA office in the state's largest city.

The attorney general's office identified the father as 54-year-ol Muni Savyon Manchesterand the son as 9-year-old Joshua Savyon Amherst. Officials say an adult supervisor was present when the father produced a handgun and shot the boy several times before shooting himself late Sunday morning.

Investigators say the father had made previous threats.

On Sundays, the YWCA is open for supervised child visitation and custody exchanges.

Rabbi Levi Krinsky said the father was depressed after returning from his brother's funeral in Israel but he said he had no concerns about his well-being.
