BUFORD, Ga. -- (WGCL) -- A neighbor of the Gwinnett County man who shot and killed his 2-year-old son and then killed himself Wednesday tells CBS46 the SWAT officers involved in the case sobbed when they realized they weren't able to save the little boy's life.
“For 20 hours, they sat here trying to save that kid and they couldn’t do it,” said Roy Groshek. "I had two grown men bawling their eyes out in my dining room. I sat there and hugged a police officer for two minutes trying to get him to stop crying.”
Groshek said that early in the situation, he and his wife and children were startled to see the large police presence outside his windows.
