Victims and suspect identified in double homicide-suicide

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office has identified the three people involved in a double homicide and suicide Monday.

Deputies say the suspect James Buchanan called an out of state family member and told then he had shot and killed his wife, Annetta Buchanan and his mother, Grace Buchanan.

When deputies arrived at 19870 Oasis Avenue Monday just after 4:15 p.m., they say James Buchanan drove away. Deputies chased him east on Highway 94 into Lincoln County. The chase eventually ended near Highway 71, that's when deputies say Buchanan shot himself to death.

Investigators have spoken with family members and say there is no obvious motive. This case marks the sixth homicide investigation in 2013 in unincorporated El Paso County.
