The Missoula County Coroner released the names of Wednesday night’s double homicide as 34 year-old Kalee Scolatti and 46 year-old Anthony Dupras, both of Missoula. The manner of death was identified as gunshot wounds.
The third individual, a male, is in critical condition at St. Patrick Hospital after sustaining a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
In what is being described as a domestic dispute, one woman and one man were both shot to death, and a second man then turned the gun on himself on Wednesday evening in Missoula.
Missoula Police Department Public Information Officer Travis Welsh said on Thursday morning that detectives have released more information about the fatal shooting in the 300 block of Brooks Street Wednesday night.
“The two deceased have been identified as a 34 year-old female and a 46 year-old male,” Welsh said. “The male who was transported via ambulance to St. Patrick Hospital last night is 36 years old, and at this point he is still alive but is in critical condition. Evidence at the scene suggests that the 36 year-old male produced a handgun and shot the other two before turning the gun on himself.”
Welsh said the the younger two individuals were at the house and the younger female phoned the older male and asked him to come to the residence.
KGVO News spoke with Missoula County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Brenda Bassett, who said the coroner should be releasing the victim’s names this afternoon.
The female victim is said to have been an employee of a local television station, although that has not been confirmed by authorities.
