The COVID-19 Pandemic with it’s lockdowns and tensions has led to a spike in intimate-partner violence.
The gruesome incident occurred at Piper Village West Apartments.
A man and a woman were killed Tuesday in what police say appears to be a murder-suicide.
The police were called to an apartment near Australian Avenue and 36th Street for a domestic disturbance and could hear arguing when they arrived.
Officers say as they knocked on the door, they heard two gunshots before entering the apartment.
Then an additional two gunshots were fired through the apartment door, then a final gunshot.
Once inside the apartment, officers say they found the body of Sharembria Lewis, 27, with gunshot wounds. Officers also discovered the body of Calvin Nance, 29, suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to the hospital, but later died.
The police stated that the children in the home at the time of the shooting were not injured.
Police say the investigation is ongoing.
