Madison Father, Daughter Dead in Murder-suicide

MADISON, Wis (CHANNEL 3000) . - An incident on Kanazawa Circle Tuesday night is being investigated as a murder-suicide involving a father and daughter, Madison police Chief Mike Koval said.

Dane County dispatch said police responded to reports of two people shot at 14 Kanazawa Circle just before 6 p.m.

Koval said it appears a 19-year-old woman was shot by her 39-year-old father, who then committed suicide. Koval said the 19-year-old is a former La Follette High School student.

Madison Police Department spokesperson Joel DeSpain said investigators do not believe the incident is related to other recent gun violence, and they do not believe there is any danger to the public.

Koval said investigators believe no one else was home at the time of the incident, but a family member who attends middle school found the father and daughter.

Koval said 100 to 150 extended family members and friends came to the area, and it was a very emotional scene.
