    Oakland police have determined that a double shooting Monday morning was a murder-suicide.

    Police say it appears the father William Roberts, 88, shot his daughter Marian Roberts, 57, and then shot himself.

    Police told NBC Bay Area that they found the two in the 4100 block of Fruitvale Avenue after responding to a call at 4:32 a.m. There, they found the two suffering from fatal gunshot wounds.

    Monday's discovery came on the heels of an especially violent weekend in Oakland, where there were three shootings reported within 24 hours.
