    Details:

    Homicide detectives are currently at the residence of Julie and Tracey Hill who have died from what appears to be a murder-suicide. Last night at approximately 10:40 pm, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from the suspect Julie Hill who requested deputies to respond to her residence.

    When deputies arrived, they found Julie Hill inside her home conscious and breathing and with what appeared to be single gunshot wound to the chest. Deputies also discovered a 38 caliber revolver on the floor next to her.

    When deputies asked what happened, she stated she had shot herself after she had shot her daughter Tracey Hill. Deputies then checked the home and found Tracey Hill in her bedroom with at least one gunshot wound to the head.

    Hillsborough County Fire Rescue responded and transported Julie Hill to a local hospital where she died a short time later. Tracey Hill was pronounced deceased at the scene.

    Homicide detective will continue to process the crime scene and will work with the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner's Office who will officially rule the cause of death.
