A Kanawha County man has been indicted by a grand jury for the murder of his 15-year-old daughter and attempted murder and malicious wounding of his son.
The Kanawha County Prosecutor's Office said Roy Pittman was indicted on the charges in connection with the shootings that occurred May 24 on Keystone Drive in Charleston.
When deputies arrived at the shooting scene, they said, Pittman had shot and killed his 15-year-old adopted daughter, Brittany Pittman, and wounded his adopted son. Pittman was confronted by deputies who watched him shoot himself in the face with a shotgun. He was transported to the hospital for treatment while detectives processed the crime scene and interviewed witnesses.
Detectives have not released theories on the motive for the shootings.
Pittman was arrested after he was released from the hospital.
