The Mount Shasta Police Department reported that shortly after 7 a.m. today, Oct. 4, 2017, they “received information from a 911 call of two people injured from gunshot wounds at 311 Old McCloud Ave. Upon arriving at scene, officers found 35-year-old Daniel Moll and 34-year-old Rena Moll deceased. Two children were found in the home uninjured. Preliminary investigation has revealed the incident appears to have been a homicide/suicide.”
The Mount Shasta Police Department expressed “deepest sympathies to the families as well as everyone else affected by this tragedy.”
MSPD was assisted at the scene by the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office, according to Sheriff-Coroner Jon Lopey, who said his office also responded Wednesday morning to an unrelated death at the Mount Shasta Resort. Sheriff Lopey said autopsies are pending in both cases to determine cause and manner of death.
