ROCHESTER (AP) - Police have identified the father who they say took the life of his young daughter and then killed himself in Rochester.

Bradley Higgins fatally shot 9-year-old Mackenzie Higgins before turning the gun on himself Sunday afternoon at his brother's house.

Authorities say the two were found dead in the basement of the home when the girl's mother came to pick up her daughter about 4 p.m.

Police say the 49-year-old father had been living in his brother's basement for a short time and his daughter was visiting. Officials say Higgins' brother, wife and three children were upstairs at the time of the shooting, but were not harmed.
