Murder-Suicide in DeFuniak Springs

By  | 

A domestic disturbance turned deadly in Defuniak Springs Saturday.
Police are calling it a murder-suicide.

It happened after 4:30pm at the couple's home in a neighborhood in the 300 block of Quebec Avenue. Eyewitnesses tell us 33 year old Cleveland William Gettis and 28 year old Saleisha Denise Richardson were arguing in their front yard when they heard the gunshots.

Authorities say Gettis opened fire on Richardson, before turning the gun on himself. They both died at the scene. Two children were said to be living at the home with the couple but it's still unclear whether they were home at the time of the shooting.
