Victims of Suspected Murder-Suicide Were Father and Daughter
Rochester Police have not released the names of the victims of a suspected murder-suicide, but say the victims were a father and his young daughter.
The bodies of the 49-year-old man and 9-year-old girl were found late Sunday afternoon after police were called to the 4500 block of 5th street northwest to investigate reports of gunshots inside a home. A spokesman says the evidence at the scene suggests the man shot and killed the child and then turned the gun on himself.
An official determination on the manner of their deaths will be made after the autopsies on the victim have been conducted. At this point, investigators have not disclosed what might have prompted the shootings.
