Update on double murder-suicide


Detectives investigating the apparent double murder-suicide in Sammamish said the investigation is still ongoing but all indications at this point are that the adult son killed his parents and then himself.


The bodies were found in a house in the 24000 block of NE 30th Pl in Sammamish on Saturday evening after deputies did a welfare check.  All three had been shot in the head and a gun was found at the scene.

Detectives have not released a motive for the shooting as the investigation is still ongoing.

The King County Medical Examiner will release the names of the deceased once their identities have been confirmed.
