Port Huron — A 6-year-old boy and his father are dead in an apparent murder-suicide Monday, police said.

Officials identified the child as Weston Keith Lagrow and his father as Robert William Lagrow, 35.

Police were called at about 8:30 p.m. to a home in the 3000 block of Cooper Avenue near 10th Avenue and Garfield Street in Port Huron for a welfare check, authorities said.
