Police Investigating Double Murder-Sucide Near Moberly

Null Value

Three people have died in central Missouri in what authorities are describing as a double homicide and a suicide. The Randolph County Sheriff's Department said in a news release that deputies responded early Saturday to a report of a shooting at a residence near Moberly. 

KOMU-TV reports that one victim was already dead when deputies arrived and the second victim died at a Moberly hospital. The release said the suspect was found at the scene suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound and died at a Columbia hospital. No names were immediately released, pending notification of relatives.
