HARRISBURG, Pa. — Authorities have released the names of a man and woman killed in a murder-suicide in a public housing unit in Pennsylvania’s capital city.
Harrisburg police said 37-year-old Jorge Padilla-Reyes fired several rounds at 41-year-old Veronica Santana-Costa before turning the gun on himself just before 9:30 p.m. Sunday at Hall Manor.
Capt. Gabriel Olivera said the shooting apparently stemmed from an argument between the two. Police indicated on their Crimewatch website that they consider the case closed.
Police said the woman’s 15-year-old son made a frantic call to 911 and responding officers found both bodies in a front bedroom of the second-floor unit. A .45-caliber firearm was recovered at the scene.
