Cobalt Shooting Victims Identified

Officers were called to the 5900 block of Cobalt Lane at 4:51pm, on Sunday, August 9, 2015, after receiving a 911 call in reference to a shooting.

Officers arrived to find a female in the driveway suffering with a gunshot wound; she was immediately transported to the Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center with life threatening injuries.  The 24 year female succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced deceased by medical authorities at 6:01pm.

Once the residence was secured, officers located a male and a female deceased inside the residence.  Justice of the Peace Garland Potvin pronounced the 38 year old female deceased at 6:18pm and the 38 year old male deceased at 6:21pm.

Through the investigation it was revealed that this incident appears to be a Double Murder/Suicide. The detectives learned that there was a domestic disturbance occurring when the male produced a handgun and shot his wife.  The other female, the wife’s sister, was fleeing the residence when the male shot her.   The male then returned inside the residence and shot himself.  There were others inside the residence but there were no other injuries.

The female victims have been identified as 38 year old Jacquelyn Leonna Morrell and 24 year old Regina Diane Culbert.

The male has been identified as 38 year old Wiley Stephen Morrell.

There will be no other information released involving this case.
