GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - Authorities in northeast Montana say a father shot his teenage daughter in the head and then shot and killed himself.

Valley County Sheriff Glenn Meier says the girl is hospitalized.

Meier tells the Great Falls Tribune (https://gftrib.com/1LzHww7 ) that the shooting occurred early Saturday near the town of Lustre.

Meier says a 16-year-old girl said her father, 62-year-old Raymond Rahn, shot her in the head and then shot himself in the head.

He says the father died en route to the hospital and the daughter is at Trinity Hospital in Wolf Point.

The two were the only occupants of the home at the time.

Meier says the man’s wife is in Seattle being treated for a disease.

The shooting remains under investigation.

Meier did not release the name of the girl.
