SHINGLETOWN, Calif. (AP) -- Sheriff's officials in rural Northern California say the man suspected of killing his wife and two young daughters at their home shot them to death.
The Shasta County sheriff's disclosed how the three victims were killed at a news conference Wednesday afternoon.
The suspect, 45-year-old Shane Franklin Miller, remains on the loose.
Lt. Dave Kent says authorities found Miller's wife, 34-year-old Sandy, and his daughters, 8-year-old Shelby and 4-year-old Shasta, suffering from fatal gunshot wounds when they arrived at the home in Shingletown on Tuesday night.
Shane Miller wasn't there.
Investigators have released a photo of Miller and said he may be driving a gold-colored 2010 Dodge Mega Cab pickup with a camper shell. He's considered armed and extremely dangerous.
