Dad arrested for shooting mom, abducting 2-year-old daughter (Gresham, Oregon)

Thank goodness Dad was arrested before he became "frustrated" and violent towards the daughter. Any dad who is more than willing to shoot a 2-year old's mother is an abusive father by definition. 

Dad is identified as JOSHUA R. CAVETT.
