The FBI continues to investigate the shooting deaths of four family members in New Town Sunday afternoon and the Sunday night death of a New Town man in Parshall.
The victims in the New Town house were 64-year-old Martha Johnson and three of her grandchildren: Benjamin, Julia, and Luke Schuster. Martha and Harley Johnson were raising the three children plus two other siblings. One of the other children was home at the time of the attack but survived and called authorities. Mr. Johnson and the other child were not home when the murders happened.
Our sources tell us the chief suspect in the shootings, 21-year-old Kalcie Eagle, killed himself when confronted by law enforcement officers in Parshall Sunday night.
As of tonight, the FBI has not confirmed that Eagle was the chief suspect,
nor has the agency said if there are other suspects in the case, although officials have said they don't consider public safety in danger related to the case.
In addition, both had recently been released from state prison.
A two-year-old child was killed by a hit-and-run driver in Minot Sunday evening.
