Police: Man suspected of shooting woman, child to death before turning gun on himself


MURRAY, Utah — Police say the deaths of three people in Murray on Sunday appear to be the result of a murder-suicide.

Investigators say they think a man shot the woman and child inside a home before turning the gun on himself.

Three other children in the home fled and escaped injury.

Police did not immediately release the names of the three deceased and their relationship.

Police responded to the home after receiving calls about a possible shooting at an East Vantana Court apartment complex shortly before noon.
