It was Monday afternoon when, police say, a woman called 911 with a disturbing message.
“There’s been an accident, well actually, not an accident,” the woman said, according to WLKY. “There’s been a murder and so I need you to come right away.”
“Then the phone went dead,” Seymour Police Detective C.J. Foster said, according to WLKY.
Now, police say they are investigating a murder-suicide after that woman, identified as 68-year-old Wanda Huber, and her teenage grandson Simon were found with fatal gunshot wounds at her home in Seymour, Indiana, according to RTV6.
It was startling news for Jean Hildret, who is Wanda Huber’s longtime neighbor, according to WHAS11.
“I am still in shock,” Hildret said, according to WHAS11. “I really am. It’s just unbelievable.”
After Wanda Huber’s 911 call went silent, police officers rushed to her home, which she had given the address for, according to WAVE3.
Her grandson was outside of the home and still alive with a gunshot wound to the head, police say, while Wanda was dead inside with a gunshot wound, according to The Seymour Tribune. Police say that the teenager later died at a hospital.
Detective Sergeant C.J. Foster told WAVE3 that authorities are now investigating why the tragedy occurred.
