Tuesday double shooting ruled murder-suicide

MONROE (KNOE 8 NEWS) - New information about the double shooting in north Monroe Tuesday.

Monroe police were called to 2715 Bramble Drive just before 11 Tuesday morning.

A house keeper was there at the time when she heard two gunshots from the bedroom.

She then found 88-year old Edgar Chapman on the floor and his wife 77-year old Agnes Chapman on the bed.

Monroe police are now calling that shooting a pre-planned murder-suicide.

Lead investigator Major Don Bartley tells KNOE a suicide note was found in the bedroom and by all appearances, the husband shot his wife, then turned the gun on himself.
