Police: Minn. shooting apparent murder-suicide

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Authorities are investigating the shooting deaths of a man and a woman at an Eden Prairie apartment last weekend as a murder-suicide.

Police say 29-year-old Derrick Williams shot his wife, 26-year-old Anitra Williams, and then killed himself.

Authorities say the shooting apparently stemmed from a domestic dispute.

Police were called to the apartment last Saturday morning and found the couple’s bodies. The apartment building was evacuated for several hours.

Police records show one prior contact with Anitra and Derrick Williams, on a report of a verbal domestic dispute in October 2009.

Authorities are not looking for any suspects.
