Hernando Enriquez was tasered by police in Arizona after allegedly killing his wife Sandra Enriquez. 44, and their 15-year-old daughter Isabelle in a rampage.

The son’s school received a call from Enriquez asking the boy to come home early on the day of the double murder last Friday.
According to KGUN9, he arrived home to find his father waiting outside for him.
Enriquez allegedly told his son the rest of the family were inside playing a game, but as soon as he walked inside, started hitting him with a blunt object – either a hammer or a tire iron.
After being smashed on the head repeatedly, the scuffle continued in the kitchen, where Enriquez allegedly grabbed a knife and stabbed his son several times.
The bloodied teenager managed to wriggle free and ran down the road to his neighbor’s home, banging on doors to alert those inside.
The neighbor called 911 and police arrived to find the father lying on the ground with his hands already underneath him.

Enriquez wasn’t in the house, and deputies went out the back door into a “rural area,” eventually finding a man laying face down in a small wash with his hands underneath him. After he failed to comply with repeated orders to roll over and show his hands, while mumbling “Just go ahead and kill me,” deputies eventually used a Taser on him.
When he rolled over, police found a 6-inch kitchen knife underneath him.
No motive has been established and he has yet to enter a plea for two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder.
Enriquez’s son, who is expected to survive, told detectives his father had insomnia and was taking prescription medication and possibly over-the-counter medication to help him sleep.
Hernando Enriquez remains in custody with no set bail. He has yet to enter a plea to the two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder he faces,
