Man Kills Grandson and Then Himself

April 01, 2002|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

An elderly man shot and killed his teenage grandson before taking his own life Sunday, according to a Sonoma County sheriff's spokesman.

Windsor police and the Sheriff's Department evacuated Royal Manor Court Trailer Park shortly after a midmorning call from Carl Donohue, who said he had shot and killed his 18-year-old grandson, Jesse, Lt. Matt McCaffrey said.

Police had spent more than five hours outside the trailer when they heard a gunshot and saw smoke coming from the home. Firefighters contained the fire shortly afterward but did not say what caused the fire.

When police entered the trailer about 4 p.m., they found the bodies of both men, McCaffrey said. It appeared both had been shot to death.
