RENO, NV - Reno police say two deaths in a Caughlin Ranch neighborhood were the result of a murder-suicide Monday.

Monday afternoon, police were called to a report of a drowning on Mountainshyre Road. They found a six-year-old girl unconscious in a bathtub and her father, 46-year-old Adam Scott, dead with a gunshot wound in the garage. The girl was later pronounced dead, though the official cause of death will require testing that may take several weeks.

Police say there was a suicide note on the home.

Scott's wife and one more child survive the deaths. They were not home when police and firefighters arrived to investigate the original call.
