OAKLAND, Calif. —
An elderly father killed his quadriplegic daughter before turning the gun on himself at their home in Oakland early Monday morning, police said.
Officers responded to a shooting on the 4100 block of Fruitvale Avenue at 4:32 a.m., Officer J. Moore said.
Police arrived to find a woman and an elderly man dead from gunshot wounds, Moore said.
The two were later identified as being father and daughter, and a relative told police that the father, identified in reports as 87-year-old William Roberts, had killed her before he shot himself.
Roberts' daughter was not identified by authorities as of Monday afternoon.
Investigators were still at the scene as of 8:30 a.m., he said.
