Who is the Suspect of the Murder ?
Police say they believe the gunman was the daughter’s estranged boyfriend. The 22-year-old suspected gunman had a previous relationship with Parker, Iowa police Sgt. Paul Parizek said. The man forced his way into the home, shot the victims, and ran away, police said.
The man, whose name was not released, was found at nearby Riley Park with a gunshot wound. He was taken to a hospital, where he was listed in critical condition later Monday.
What is the motive of the murder?
Officers found the suspect at the park, which is about a block away from the crime scene. He suffered an apparent gunshot wound and was taken to a nearby hospital, where he remained in critical condition as of Monday night.
A motive for the shooting is unclear. Police said there is no indication of any ongoing threat to the public. The women’s deaths mark the 19th and 20th homicides in Des Moines so far this year.
What did the Spokesperson say?
According to Sgt. Paul Parizek, a police spokeswoman, the 22-year-old guy, who had previously dated Parker, is thought to have broken into the house just before 3 a.m., shot both ladies inside, and then fled on foot. There were numerous calls to dispatch reporting the shooting.
On the spot, both women’s deaths were confirmed. They were the 19th and 20th homicide victims in Des Moines this calendar year. Their passing adds to Iowa’s domestic violence death toll, which as of the end of August, the most recent data available, stood at 12.
