A man suspected of fatally shooting his son in College Park, then turning the gun on himself, is believed to have first killed his wife in their Bel Air home before traveling to Prince George's County, police said. 

According to a release from the Prince George's Police Department, Nasir Siddique, 57, of the 1200 block of Mikara Court in Bel Air, is suspected of killing his son, Farhad Siddique, 19. 

Farhad Siddique had been reported missing to University of Maryland police Wednesday evening.

Around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, police found both him and Nasir Siddique suffering from gunshot wounds in Nasir Siddique's car.

Their bodies were found in a parking lot in the 8100 block of 48th Avenue, about a mile from the University of Maryland campus.
