APD says that 78-year-old Willie McCulloch was shot and killed by his son, 39-year-old Scott McCullouch on May 31 at a home in the 2500 block of Greenland Lane.
Austin 911 had received a call from a woman reporting her son had shot himself just before 4 p.m. that day. Officers arrived and found two gunshot victims, identified as Willie and Scott McCulloch, who were unresponsive.
Both were transported to a local hospital where they were pronounced dead.
An investigation revealed that Scott McCulloch had shot his father, then turned the pistol on himself. No motive has been determined and APD says the case is still under investigation.
