Two Dead Following East St. Louis Thanksgiving Shooting
State police Capt. Jim Morrisey says the investigation shows that 69-year-old Bobby Stewart repeatedly shot his 66-year-old wife, Dorothy McCaskill, with a handgun at their home. They say he then shot his 44-year-old daughter in the leg as she fled to a neighbor's house.
McCaskill died at the scene. The daughter was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Her medical status wasn't immediately known Friday.
Police using a robot to search the home found Stewart dead in a second-floor bedroom of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Morrisey says two guns were found inside the home. Autopsies were planned.
