MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A 41-year-old man and a 39-year-old woman were found dead near 5th and Bottsford on Milwaukee’s south side Monday, April 8th. Police are calling the incident an apparent murder-suicide.
According to police, the 41-year-old man was found dead in the driveway and the 39-year-old woman was found dead inside a van.
Shots reportedly rang out in the neighborhood shortly before 9:00 a.m.
Gayle Glaser says she heard three shots and came to her window, but saw nothing. Another neighbor ran to the scene and saw the man shot to death, lying near a van. Inside the van was a woman who had been shot.
“There’s some indication that the two victims are residents of that dwelling. They did have some type of a relationship. It’s unclear if they were ever married. At this juncture it appears they were not,” Milwaukee Police Lt. Kenneth Grahms said.
