A couple was fatally shot and another family member was wounded early Tuesday in what police are investigating as a murder-suicide at the family’s Chesterfield County home. The victim who survived is the 18-year-old son of the woman killed.
Chesterfield police identified the victims as Makiba A. Hall, 47, and Christopher B. Evans, 51, who police said were in a long-term domestic relationship. Investigators believe Evans shot and killed Hall and wounded her son before killing himself. Hall and Evans died at the scene.
Officers responded about 2:05 a.m. to a reported shooting in the 7400 block of Barkbridge Road . Upon arrival, they found one person in the front yard — later identified as Hall’s son — with apparent gunshot wounds. Two more victims, later identified as Hall and Evans, were located dead after officers made entry into the residence, police said.
Hall’s son was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police said they are still trying to determine what led to the shooting.
