Deadly Domestic Dispute

Two children in Defuniak springs are without their parents tonight, after a domestic disturbance turns deadly.

Defuniak Springs police are calling it a murder-suicide. It happened late this afternoon at the couple's home in a neighborhood in the 300-block of Quebec Avenue.

33-year old Cleveland William Gettis and 28-year old Saleisha Denise Richardson were reportedly arguing in their front yard.

Authorities say Gettis opened fire on Richardson, before turning the gun on himself. They both died at the scene.

It's still unclear whether the children were home at the time of the shooting. Police are still investigating.
