New Hampshire's attorney general says a YWCA where a father shot his 9-year-old son to death during a supervised weekend visit had used a metal detector on the man in the past but did not use it Sunday.
WMUR-TV reports that the handheld metal detector wasn't used on Muni Savyon (MOON'-ee SAVE'-yon) but it wasn't clear why. Police say Savyon shot his son before taking his own life. The YWCA said it is devastated by the "senseless act of violence."
The YWCA was closed Monday and said it was working with police and the attorney general's office.
Senior Assistant Attorney General Jeffery Strelzin (STREL'-zin) says that when the YWCA has had the money in the past, it has hired police officers to be in the building to provide security.
