Police discovered a weapon, according to Police Chief Peter Newsham. To enter a place like that and see someone who has passed away as a consequence of gunshot wounds is just traumatic for police officers, according to Newsham.

A family member of the man who owns the house who was contacted by FOX 5 claimed that he was renting it out and that there were other individuals residing there. Newsham referred to the event as “domestic,” but he didn’t provide any information regarding the relationship between the gunman and the victims.
