A Phoenix man has been arrested on suspicion of killing his wife, two of his young daughters and a man who the suspect thought was romantically involved with his wife, police said Friday.

The wife and daughters of the suspect were killed at the family's home, and the 30-year-old suspect then went Thursday night to an apartment complex where he shot and killed a 46-year-old man, said Sgt. Tommy Thompson, a police department spokesman. A woman and another man were shot and wounded at the complex, Thompson said.

The suspect was arrested by police as he drove away from the apartment complex.

The suspect and the victims were not identified and authorities did not say how the wife of the suspect and their daughters, ages 5 and 7, were killed. A 3-year-old daughter of the couple was not hurt and was found under a bed at the family's home, Thompson said.

"It is my understanding that for whatever reason he elected not to shoot her," Thompson said.

The suspect told detectives during an interview that he believed "in God's eyes it was all right for him to deal with someone in this manner who had been involved in adultery or an extramarital affair," Thompson said.

Not a fan of this topic title. Pretty much labeling the victims as adulterers when there is zero evidence outside the suspicions of a homicidal sociopath that she was in fact stepping out. Pitiful.

Wish theyd release names. I want to see what these creepos look like.

Might be fun to guess races. Im bettin on hispanic. Slaughtering your entire family(almost) and the suspected homewrecker in a situation like this seems like the type of thing that toxic, machismo, chauvanistic culture would be prime for. The religious element also makes that likely, Mexicans sure do fucking love that shit.
So, its not okay to assume she was an adulterous but you can assume the shooter was Hispanic? Seems a little hypercritical on your part....

Nothign at all wrong with some harmless, innocent fun trying to guess the race of a perpetrator based on legitimate sociological/cultural facets.

I really dislike reading comments on stories like this. Always ends up with victim blaming and slut shaming.

He suspected she was having an affair. It doesn't mean she actually was..and frankly even if she was, she probably needed an escape from him. He's the only one to have said so at this point and frankly anyone taking the word of someone who violently murders his own biological - and innocent - children in such a fashion because God said it was okay...needs their own head checked.

Smith suspected the woman was having an affair, which she denied, but Smith "shot her because he believed God told him to do so,'' the statement says.

After killing his wife, identified as Dasia Patterson, 29, Smith turned his attention to one of his three daughters.

According to the court record, Smith believed his middle child, 5-year-old Nasha Smith, had "exhibited bad behavior'' against God's law, so he laid her on top of his wife's body and then shot the girl in the back of the head.

Smith then killed his 7-year-old daughter, Mayan Smith, because she was crying over what happened, according to the court record.

"Austin believed you should not weep for the wicked, so he punched her in the face several times with a closed fist, threw her up into the ceiling, and threw her down to the floor several times," police said in the document.

Officials said Mayan tried to escape, but Smith grabbed her and forced her to stay, believing God told him to kill her as well.

According to the court document, Smith "took a baseball bat and struck the child's head several times,'' killing her.

He beat his own child to death with a baseball bat..let that sink in.

Let's not forget he attacked not only his innocent children but also 3 other innocent people.

Officers with a warrant searched the car Smith was driving and found a 9mm handgun, a .45 caliber handgun and a .223 caliber rifle they believe were used in the shootings
Simple facts are that he got drunk at a bar, had delusional thoughts and then tried to murder anyone who tried to tell him other wise. And guess what...it's not even his first rodeo with crazy. Surprise surprise!

Police seized and returned three guns in November from a Phoenix man who was arrested last week on suspicion of killing his wife, two of their young daughters and another man, a department spokesman said Tuesday.

Sgt. Tommy Thompson said Tuesday that officers initially responded to 30-year-old Austin Smith's Phoenix home on Nov. 21 after a neighbor reported he had a gun and was yelling that people were trying to kill him.

Arriving officers at the time referred him to an urgent psychiatric center and took three guns from the home.

But Thompson said the law required the police department to return the guns about a week later when he asked for them back and no outstanding warrants were found.

Bunch of armchair warriors looking a little like this :eggface: after slamming Jack because he called out the crap thread title.
