According to the Calhoun Police Department, officers were dispatched to Calhoun Tobacco and Food Mart, located at 1402 South Highway 41, shortly after 7 p.m. last night to a domestic disturbance incident that resulted in what the CPD is calling a murder-suicide.

Officers arrived to the scene and found an employee of the store, who told officers she had been shot. An officer witnessed a male run southeast around the store toward Stone Loop, then heard a single gunshot in the area of 116 Stone Loop.

While on scene, officers cleared the store and found another female laying behind the counter, unresponsive.

The store employee who was speaking to officers had a gunshot wound to her arm and side.  Officers gave first aid to stop the bleeding of the employee and, according to the CPD, she was transported to Hamilton Medical Center by ambulance.  

The unresponsive female, later identified as Valerie Castillo, age 18, with an address of 3200 Motor Avenue, Los Angeles, Calif., was pronounced  dead at the scene by medics.  

A search of the area around 116 Stone Loop revealed a male subject, identified as Victor Andres Pacheco, around 20 years of age, with an address of 1978 Miramar Street, Pomona, Calif., was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.  

Detectives with the CPD continue to investigate additional evidence and details this morning.

What do you think should happen with the Calhoun Police Station?

The current Calhoun Police Station has been found to have harmful mold, asbestos and lead paint within its walls. The City of Calhoun had many options to choose from: rehabbing the current police station to bring it up to health standards; renting a building for the police to use as a station or buying property and building a station. The City Calhoun has dwindled those choices down to: purchasing the Fred's building and property on Curtis Parkway near the Calhoun Primary / Elementary school OR building on land offered to the City of Calhoun free of charge on McDaniel Station Road, across from the future site of the GBI Regional Facility. What do you think the City should do??
