"MILWAUKEE, WI — A Milwaukee man shot his 6-year-old daughter to death and then committed suicide after fighting with the child's mother Sunday, police said.
"The couple, who have been together about eight years, got into a physical confrontation Sunday morning. The woman left the home, went to work and then stopped at Police District 4 to report the domestic violence after her work shift ended, Lt. Justin Carloni said.
"As soon as the woman reported the incident, officers were sent to the home near N. 51st St. and W. Fairmout Ave., arriving around noon. They found the home locked. When they entered they found the man and his daughter dead, each with one bullet wound.
"The father and daughter, whose names were not released pending notification of relatives, were pronounced dead at the scene.
"Neighbors operating a rummage sale across the street said they heard two gunshots around 11 a.m. Sunday. They said the family had lived at the one-story brown bungalow on N. 51st St. for about a year."
