Police in Alaska say a preliminary investigation shows 22-year-old McKay Hutton was the gunman who killed three others —including an infant — and himself at a hotel on Friday. The Fairbanks police public information officer released a statement Saturday saying a motive is unknown.
The victims were identified as 54-year-old Linda Hutton, 22-year-old Emily McDonald and 8-week-old Teagan Hutton.
Fairbanks police and fire departments were called to a Hampton Inn on Friday afternoon by hotel staff. Arriving officers found a man crying as he sat in a second-floor hallway. Police say he directed officers to a nearby room, where they found the bodies.
The infant appears to be the daughter of McDonald whose Facebook page says she and McKay Hutton were married a year ago.
The police department says all had gunshot wounds. They say there is no indication that drugs or alcohol was involved.
"What we know is that there's a lot we still don't know. So until we can figure out and put some more pieces together we're not going to talk about a motive or possible scenario of what might have happened," a police officer told The Fairbanks News Miner.
Police say details involving the shooter or any motive is still under investigation.
Autopsies will be performed on the victims.
