Double shooting at Wisconsin homes leaves 5 dead, 2 injured Shootings at two homes left five dead and two injured in northern Wisconsin, police said Monday. The suspected shooter was among the dead, according to the Chippewa County Sheriff’s Department. Officers responded to a possible shooting call at about 10:30 p.m on Sunday and found a man and woman dead and two others wounded. Police did not disclose whether the dead man or woman was the suspected shooter. While attempting to notify the suspected shooter’s next of kin, police discovered another crime scene four hours later: three additional homicide victims, a man, woman and juvenile boy.

Three violent incidents in Oakland on Monday night and early Tuesday morning left two people dead and two people suffering from gunshot wounds, authorities said.

Arizona man arrested for allegedly stabbing mother to death.
A Bullhead City man was arrested Sunday for allegedly stabbing his elderly mother to death before threatening to kill his brother and stepfather. Travers Proulx, 43, was booked into the Mohave County Jail on one count of first-degree murder after he allegedly stabbed 74-year-old Bette Vaughn to death. Officers responded to a house in the area of Ramar Road and Lakeside Drive at 4:15 a.m. to a report that Proulx got into an argument with Vaughn and started stabbing her with a knife. Proulx's brother, who was not identified, reportedly woke up to the sound of his mother screaming and tried to get Proulx out of the house.
