Police in Texas are looking for a 50-year-old man suspected of killing his own two daughters.

Officers say Yaser Abdel Said shot his two teenage daughters in his taxi cab last night. They said Yaser then abandoned his cab in a parking lot, leaving his 18-year-old daughter Aminda Yaser Said and 17-year-old daughter Sarah Yaser Said in the cab to die.

One of the teens called 911 to tell police she was shot, but by the time officers got there, both teens were dead.

Police have not said what the motive for the shooting is and they are still looking for the father.

The teens' 19-year-old brother, Islam Said, begged his father to turn himself in on Thursday night.
