IDs released of man who killed mother, self at Seattle retirement community

The King County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified an elderly woman who was fatally shot by her son, who then killed himself at a Ravenna retirement community a week ago.

Annie McClure, 83, died from a  gunshot wound to the head and her death was ruled a homicide. Her son, William T. McClure, 57, also died from a gunshot wound to the head and his death was ruled a suicide, according to death investigators.

At around 2 p.m. on July 18, police received a report of a suicidal man leaving his home in Ballard.

“A short time later, police received a second call from the family indicating the man may have been heading to the Ida Culver House Ravenna, where his mother lived, police said in a news release at the time.

As officers were en route, staff there went to check on the woman and  found the bodies of the man and a woman, police said last week.

A police spokesman said Thursday he didn’t have any updates on the investigation.
