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.
