Police: Lawrenceville mother shots autistic son, herself

Posted: Updated:

Gwinnett County Police are investigating a possible murder-suicide in Rock Springs Park subdivision that happened Thursday evening.

Police responded to the 500 block of Rock Springs Road just after 8 p.m. Thursday after receiving a report of a mother and her autistic son had gone missing. Family members told police that they had been looking for them for a while and came across their vehicle in the subdivision.

After a 2-hour search, police found the bodies of 48-year-old Thuy Phan and 24-year-old Vincent Phan in a wooded area off a paved path nearby. Police say they died from apparent gunshot wounds.

Investigators believe the mother shot her son and then herself. They are still trying to establish a motive.
