Nashville, TN-Ty Dodson, a 6-year-old boy from Kentucky, had just started kindergarten when he went to visit his grandparents in Nashville, Tennessee, this weekend.
Ty was shot and killed, allegedly by his grandfather, Terry Majors, at the Nashville home. Majors also allegedly shot and hilled his wife, Leigh Shea-Majors, before dying by suicide.
Chase Dodson, the boy’s uncle, said losing Ty “was the worst day of my life.”
Ty lived with his mother, stepfather, and little sister in Kentucky, and was visiting his grandparents in Tennessee over the weekend. Chase Dodson said his nephew visited his grandparents often and he had never seen any signs of trouble.
"I don't understand why. How could anybody in their right mind... do that to a little boy," the grieving uncle said. "He was our world."
The motive is undetermined and the investigation is ongoing, police said Wednesday.
