MURPHYS, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say grief counselors will be available at a Northern California high school attended by teenage siblings who were shot and killed by their father before he took his own life.
Calaveras County Sheriff's Sgt. Chris Hewitt said Monday that investigators are still looking into a motive behind the shootings. Deputies found 17-year-old Alex Marshall and his 14-year-old sister, Macaila, dead of apparent gunshot wounds on Saturday.
Sheriff's officials say they were shot in the head by their father, 54-year-old Phillip Marshall, before he took his own life. All three were found inside their home.
Calaveras County Supervisor Merita Callaway told the Record of Stockton (http://bit.ly/14MDVqY) that she and Phillip Marshall would have coffee together, and he appeared to be a loving father.
