MIAMI (AP) — Miami-Dade police say a man suspected of fatally shooting his wife and son and wounding an attorney begged officers to shoot him during a three-hour standoff.

Police Director Juan Perez says Fadel Jabado wanted "suicide by cop" when he fired his weapon at officers while sitting in his car in a field Wednesday afternoon. Police shot Jabado, who remains in critical condition.

The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/2eCHVnW ) reports Jabado is an ice cream truck driver suffering financial woes. The bodies of his wife and 26-year-old son were found in their home.

Police say Jabado shot 58-year-old attorney Larry Harshman five times at his law office. Harshman drew up the paperwork for a home Jabado was forced to sell three years ago. Harshman is in critical condition.
