Murder investigation underway in Merced County
MERCED COUNTY, Calif. (KFSN) -- Authorities say a 67-year-old man was found shot to death in a home on Sycamore near Second Avenue, south of Delhi.
Sheriff's deputies went to a home south of Delhi Tuesday morning after a woman found her family member dead and called 9-1-1. The first responders discovered the 67-year-old man had blood coming from his mouth. Detectives later determined he had been shot to death.
Authorities are now trying to find another relative who lives at the home. They've issued an alert to other law enforcement agencies in the area.
"Obviously if there's something unique to the family situation wherein that one person is normally there and they are not, we certainly do want to talk to them," said Merced County Sheriff Mark Pazin.
Authorities are not releasing any other details about that missing family member. Investigators believe the victim was killed sometime between Monday evening and eight o'clock Tuesday morning.
