On November 29, 2023, at approximately 2:27 am, the IPD received a distress call regarding two individuals who had been shot at 700 S. Walnut Street. Officers swiftly responded and discovered the lifeless bodies of two individuals in their mid-twenties near the entrance of the apartment. Based on initial findings, it seems highly likely that this tragic event was a murder-suicide. Evidently, an individual, identified as the ex-boyfriend, entered the apartment and proceeded to shoot the current boyfriend before taking their own life.
Fortunately, a female occupant and a 5-year-old child inside the apartment were unharmed and have been transported to the police station for further questioning. However, it is important to note that this information is subject to change as the investigation is still in progress.
