APD: Sixth Avenue shooting that left 2 dead was homicide-suicide
A shooting at a Sixth Avenue residence that left a man and woman dead over the weekend has been determined to be a homicide-suicide, according to a Wednesday release from the Anchorage Police Department.
Danny Smalley, 61, shot his wife before shooting himself early Sunday morning. Brenda Smalley, 46, died Monday at a local hospital, APD spokesperson Renee Oistad said.
Dispatch first received a report of shots fired from inside a residence in the 5900 block of East Sixth Avenue around 2 a.m., police said. Four family members were inside of the residence when they heard gunshots.
The couple was found inside a bathroom of the residence, both shot in the upper body. They had an argument before the shooting, Oistad said.
Police believe this was an isolated incident.
