Two Dead in Apparent Murder-Suicide

Investigators said the man and woman apparently had previously been in a romantic relationship.


Two people are dead in what appears to be a murder-suicide, according to police.

"At 6:36 p.m. we received a report of gunshots in the 2100 block of Alameda Avenue," Lt. Joe McNiff said. "Officers responded and found a woman and a man. The woman was pronounced deceased at the scene. The man was transported to a local hospital."

The man was pronounced dead at 1:44 a.m. this morning, according to a Bay City News Service report. 

Bay City News also reported the woman was 30 years old and the man was 36. 

The man and woman apparently had previously been in a romantic relationship, police said.

Several people commented on Alameda Patch's Facebook page that they heard the shots Monday evening.

"Gun shots heard on corner of Walnut & Alameda Ave.," wrote one.

"A neighbor heard 4 gunshots," wrote another.

A woman, who parked in the area shortly after the shooting, wrote that she saw police enter a home and, later, she saw a coroner's van.

"[I] parked right near there on my way to a class tonight, saw a number of police rushing in to a house," she wrote. "When I left, a coroner's van was there and the area was still being monitored by police, one policeman standing out in front of the house, and it was all cordoned off with 'crime scene' tape."

Around 7:30 p.m. the Alameda Police Department tweeted that there was a "Police activity 2100 blk Alameda Ave" and advised residents to "avoid the area."

"The investigation is ongoing," McNiff said. 

This story will be updated as more details emerge. Bay City News Service contributed to this report.

such a shame. He was crazy, she didn't see past it. She was warned many times to leave but always came back. This last time looked like it was over, instead it was too late. May she rest in heaven, and may he rot in hell

This was my sisters cousin. (Sarah) the asshole that shot her had no warning, he was simply pissed that she called it off with him. Yesterday was the one year anniversary of Sarah's passing at the hands of a psychopath piece of shit. Sarah was a loving, beautiful person who loved her new puppy like a child. She and my sister enjoyed drinking champagne and simply laughing and loving. If any good came out of this, it is that Sarah left behind a legacy and love of life. Even though hers was shortly lived, she lived it fully. Rest in Paradise, Sarah. You are greatly loved and missed <3

Do you know more about this case? I know it was over a year ago, but I briefly dated Carlos shortly before this happened & I just can't imagine how this all went down...
