Two found dead in apparent murder-suicide over the weekend

Madison police said two people died on the east side following an apparent murder-suicide Saturday afternoon.

Police were called to a townhouse shortly after noon and forced entry after talking to concerned family members. Inside the house, they discovered a 34-year-old woman and a 39-year-old man dead with gunshot wounds.

Madison Police Chief Mike Koval said in his blog the two knew each other “in a domestic context” and the incident was isolated with no threat to the public.

Koval said he plans to release updates on the investigation in a press conference Monday.

Police also intervened in what they said were two fights between groups of people in front of The James apartments on Gorham Street early Saturday morning.

A 19-year-old woman was arrested and others were cited.

Sunday morning, police responded to a sexual assault call on Gilman Street. A 22-year-old woman fought off a man after he surprised her from behind and tried to grope her. The suspect was not immediately apprehended.

Less than two hours later, police responded to a fight on the corner of State and Frances Street. Those involved claimed the fight started inside a nearby bar and continued outside. Two men were cited for disorderly conduct and another required stitches for a cut received during the fight.
