BROWN DEER, Wisc. (WLAX/NEXSTAR) – A man fatally shot two people at an apartment complex in a Milwaukee suburb and later died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.
According to Brown Deer Police Chief Peter Nimmer, the shooting likely began as a domestic dispute.
He said the 26-year-old suspect shot himself and was taken to a hospital, where he died. A 31-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman were also killed. A 36-year-old man was shot in the leg. A child in the apartment was not hurt, he said.
When officers arrived at the scene shortly after 10 a.m. Saturday, they were met with gunfire coming from the second story of the apartment complex. A squad car was hit; however, no officers were injured. Nimmer noted that no law enforcement officers returned fire during the incident.
“At this time there is no reason to believe that there’s anyone else we are looking for,” he told reporters at the scene. “We believe we have the suspect.”
Nimmer added that there is “no reason to believe there is any danger to the community at this time.”
The names of the suspect or the victims have not been released.
