Domestic violence turns deadly in Shasta County. The Sheriff's Office says it responded to Mercy Hospital early Sunday morning where the 79-year-old victim said her husband choked her to the point that she had pain in her neck and was having trouble swallowing. Deputies responded to the home on Gas Point Road where the suspect yelled "I will kill myself before I go to jail." Deputies then heard a gunshot, and found the man dead inside. At last report, no word on the identity of the suspect.
