In an appalling and hapless incident, an 11-year-old boy from Arizona killed his grandmother after being asked to clean his room and committed suicide.

The incident took place when Yvonne Woodard died after her grandson hit her hard on the back of her head. The witness to the whole incident was Doyle Hebert, husband of Yvonne Woodard.

According to Hebert, his grandson killed his wife because she asked him to clean his room.

Globalnews reported that Maricopa County Sheriff's Office received a call from Doyle Hebert in Litchfield Park, Arizona on Saturday just after 5 p.m. who told them his grandson shot and killed his wife before turning the gun on himself.

Hebert told police that he and his wife, Yvonne Woodard, had asked their grandson to clean his room and pick up after himself throughout the day because he was being stubborn. "They then sat down to watch TV which is when his grandson shot Woodard in the back of the head. He ran after his grandson briefly before returning to his wife to try and help her. That's when he said he heard another gunshot and saw his grandson take a few steps before falling to the ground," Sergeant Joaquin Enriquez told KTVK.

Their neighbor showed their support to the family after the horrific incident. "We stood outside and we prayed, and I know that seems really, really hollow, especially when you're going through something… but that's the best that you can [do]," neighbor Danny Dillon said.
