  • Saturday, March 2, 2024

Three people were found dead Friday night in an apparent murder-suicide on North Moore Road. One of the victims was a child.

Chattanooga Police responded at 8:40 p.m. to a call for multiple people found dead inside a residence in the 100 block of North Moore Road. When officers arrived on scene, they met friends and family who said they found three people dead inside the residence.

CPD officers located three people, two adults and one child, unresponsive inside the residence.

Hamilton County EMS responded to the scene and pronounced all three deceased on scene.

The preliminary investigation appears to show a 29-year-old man shot a 25-year-old woman and her six-year-old daughter, then shot himself.

The three were living together at the same residence.
Investigators are still working to determine the exact relationships between the three.

Although the preliminary investigation appears to show this incident is a domestic violence murder-suicide, investigators will continue to investigate this incident to make sure that no other suspects were involved and confirm that it was a murder-suicide.
