Morristown police are investigating what appears to be a murder-suicide that occurred early this morning at the apartment complex at 1155 McFarland Street.
Officers responded to apartment 6 shortly after midnight and found three people suffering from gunshot wounds. Angel Robert Garcia, 30, of Morristown died from his wounds.
Wanda Batista Maldonado, 29, the resident of the apartment was taken to UT Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Detectives believe that the shooter forced his way into the apartment and shot both victims with a .32 caliber handgun before turning the gun on himself.
He is identified as Brandon Michael McMurtury, 30, of Morristown.
All three victims knew each other and Maldonado reported to investigators that she had previously had problems with McMurtury.
The investigation is still ongoing.
