A 25-year-old man is dead and a 27-year-old woman was in critical condition following what police are saying was an attempted murder-suicide early Monday morning in Worcester.
Authorities were called a Huntington Avenue home around 12:55 a.m. on a report of two people shot. Police believe the man shot his girlfriend first, and then shot himself, according to a news release.
The man was pronounced dead on scene. The woman was rushed to a nearby hospital in critical condition. As of Tuesday afternoon, police didn’t have an update on her condition, according to a spokesperson for the department.
“[We were] woken up by the sirens and the ambulance,” Tom Casiello, a neighbor, told Boston 25 News.
The man was identified as Trey Mahone by a friend, according to the news station. Mahone had reportedly started living with his girlfriend after she moved to the Huntington Avenue home a few months ago.
Over the last few years, Mahone has faced 13 charges, including an assault and battery charge from January. He had been ordered to wear a GPS bracelet, according to Boston 25. He was a father of five and worked in construction.
The 27-year-old woman is a registered nurse and mother to a 5-year-old, the news station said.
“It’s hard to believe,” neighbor Charlie Torres told WCVB. “Especially coming from that couple, they didn’t seem to have any problems.”
