Autopsies, Investigation Continue in Fresno Shooting Deaths

Police say at least seven of the nine family members found dead in a Fresno home were shot to death.

Investigators are still working to determine the cause of death for the two others that police discovered tangled in a pile of bodies when responding to a child custody call on Friday.

The police chief says the similarity of the wounds makes it likely they were also shot to death.

Police have not yet released the names of the victims — eight children and a young woman.

But it´s believed that they´re the daughter and grandchildren of Marcus Wesson, who has cooperated with police since he walked out of the home covered in blood.

Wesson has since been booked on suspicion of murder, and his arraignment is scheduled for Wednesday.
