Murder-suicide suspected in deaths of 4 in Alaska hotel room

Authorities in Alaska say they are investigating the deaths of four people in a hotel room as a murder-suicide. The dead include a 2-month-old girl.

Fairbanks police and fire departments were called to a Hampton Inn on Friday afternoon by hotel staff. Arriving officers found a man crying as he sat in a second-floor hallway. Police say he directed officers to a nearby room, where they found the bodies.

The victims were identified as 54-year-old Linda Hutton, 22-year-old Emily McDonald, 22-year-old McKay Hutton and 8-week-old Teagan Hutton.

The police department says all had gunshot wounds. They say there is no indication that drugs or alcohol was involved.

"What we know is that there’s a lot we still don’t know. So until we can figure out and put some more pieces together we’re not going to talk about a motive or possible scenario of what might have happened," a police officer told The Fairbanks News Miner. 

Police say details involving the shooter or any motive is still under investigation.

Autopsies will be performed on the victims.
