TACOMA, Wash. —

Authorities say a second adult child has died after a weekend shooting at a Tacoma, Wash.-area home. Police say a 69-year-old man shot his adult son and daughter.

The News Tribune says ( http://is.gd/ay4nDg) Tacoma General Hospital spokeswoman Marce Edwards confirms that 46-year-old Dennis League died Thursday afternoon.

Police say Michael League shot both Dennis League and his sister, 43-year-old Danielle Faucett, while they slept early Sunday at the family's Puyallup (Pew-AL-up) home.

Michael League has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder charges. Prosecutors said charges will be amended in light of Dennis League's death.

Prosecutors say Michael League called 911 and told a dispatcher what he'd done and that his children's use of drugs and alcohol caused strife in the family.
