MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Milwaukee Police are still trying to sort out the details of a violent weekend.
Four people died from shootings or stabbings – and 8 others were wounded. That includes a double-shooting incident from Monday morning, in which a 41-year-old man and a 39-year-old woman were found dead.
Police said both lived together on Milwaukee’s south side – but they could not say whether domestic violence was the motive.
Officials said they did not believe the two were married. There was no word on any possible suspects.
Also, police Monday identified a murder victim from Saturday. They said 58-year-old Carlos Diaz-Ruiz was stabbed to death, and his 18-year-old stepson has been arrested.
Also, a 35-year-old Beloit man was found dead from a gunshot wound to the head. Police said it appeared to be a self-inflicted wound, but they’re still waiting for autopsy results.
Milwaukee has now recorded 18 homicides so far this year. That’s down one from the first three months of 2012.
