Suspect, victim dead in apparent Tennessee murder-suicide

May 18, 2019

MORRISTOWN, Tenn. (AP) — Police say a Tennessee man shot two people in an apartment, one of whom died, and then he shot and killed himself.

In a Facebook post, Morristown Police identified the suspected shooter in the incident early Saturday as 30-year-old Brandon Michael McMurtury.

Police say 30-year-old Angel Robert Garcia died from his wounds, while the 29-year-old resident of the apartment was taken to the hospital with injuries not expected to be life-threatening.

Detectives believe McMurtury forced his way into the apartment and shot the two others with a handgun before turning the gun on himself.

Police say the three knew each other and the resident told investigators she previously had problems with McMurtury.

An investigation is still ongoing.
