Wednesday, May 8 — Authorities are searching for a man believed to have shot and killed his wife and two daughters in Shingletown last night.
Shane Franklin Miller, 45, is considered to be at-large in the Northern California region and armed and dangerous, possibly having a cache of weapons.
It is believed he is driving a gold 2010 Dodge Mega Cab pick-up truck with a similar color camper shell. The license plate number is 8Z75988.
Miller is 5’10” tall with red hair and blue eyes and weighs approximately 200 pounds.
During a press conference held this afternoon, Lt. Dave Kent, of the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office said if anyone comes into contact with Miller, they are to use caution and call 911.
If anyone knows of his whereabouts they can also call the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office at 515-5041 or 245-6025.
Kent said federal, state and local agencies are on investigative leads of Miller’s whereabouts.
At about 7:45 p.m. Tuesday, May 7, Shasta Comm received a disturbance 911 call that came from the home at 28400 Alpine Way, according to Kent.
When deputies arrived they observed two subjects down inside the house. They requested assistance and subsequently entered the home where they found one adult and two children all dead.
The victims were identified as 34-year-old Sandy Miller, 8-year-old Shelby Miller and 4-year-old Shasta Miller and they apparently suffered multiple gunshot wounds.
Kent said they do not have confirmation at this time as to what type of firearm was used and a gun has not yet been located.
Upon investigation, authorities believe Miller is responsible and is the primary suspect, although Kent would not say why.
Due to some phone calls and using precaution, some schools in the area were placed on lockdown today.
