The death of a father and daughter at an Oakland home early this morning has been ruled a murder-suicide by investigators, a police spokeswoman said. The father was identified as 88-year-old William Roberts, who fatally shot his 57-year-old daughter Marian and then killed himself, Oakland police Officer Johnna Watson said.
They were found by officers who responded at 4:32 a.m. to the home in the 4100 block of Fruitvale Avenue, Watson said. No other information about the case was immediately available this afternoon from police.
