A Reno teen admitted to 911 dispatchers that she shot her younger brother and father at an apartment in Stead on Friday afternoon, court documents obtained by News 4-Fox 11 reveal.
According to the documents, Mashenka Reid, 17, told dispatchers she killed her relatives because she “couldn’t control the urge to kill somebody.”

Reid called 911 and told the dispatcher, “I shot my dad. I shot my brother. My brother is dead.” The teen proceeded to tell emergency responders she dropped the Walther PPS gun inside the house.
When police arrived on scene, they found Mashenka’s younger brother – approximately four or five years old – with a gunshot wound to the head. Mashenka was able to direct officers to the garage, where her father was found suffering from gunshot wounds to the chest and back.
