 Marion Police Department detectives are investigating the shooting death of a woman Saturday morning in the 800 block of South McClure Street. 

A 911 call Saturday morning was made where the caller hung the phone up after making the call.  An officer was dispatched to the address but no one answered the door. 

A few minutes later another 911 call from another location indicated that his brother, the suspect, had dropped off a child and told him a woman had been shot at the McClure Street location.  

Officers returned to the address on McClure and found a victim in a bedroom with a gun shot wound to the head. A 6-year-old girl was also found in the house sleeping and unharmed. 

The suspect Christopher Rennaker turned himself in at the Marion Police Department where he was arrested for murder and taken to the Grant County Jail.
