Mother, daughter dead in McLean shooting
Two women whose bodies were found in a house in McLean on Friday died in an apparent murder-suicide, police said Saturday.
The two were identified as Helen Lorena Hargan, 23, and her mother, Pamela Denise Hansen Hargan, 63. The younger Hargan shot her mother and then herself, police said.
Police said the bodies were found in a home in the 6700 block of Dean Drive after they received a call — it is not clear from whom — that someone there might have been killed.
A 7-year-old girl, thought to be the younger Hargan’s niece and a frequent visitor to the home, was not present and is safe with her mother, police said.
