Two people who the police said “were involved in a domestic relationship which recently ended” died Thursday night in a shooting in Harwood, Maryland, that the police are calling a murder-suicide.
The Anne Arundel County police said in a statement Friday that they got a 911 call reporting the sound of gunshots and screaming on Flanders Lane, near Sands Road and Wooton’s Landing Wetland Park.
Officers found a woman in a car, whom they later identified as Shelby Lyn Chialastri, 25, who lived on Flanders Lane, with a gunshot wound, and a man, whom they later identified as Harrison Lawrence Hertel, 23, of Annapolis, in the parking lot with a gunshot wound they said was self-inflicted.
When the fire department got there, they pronounced both of them dead on the scene.
The police said Chialastri and Hertel had been in a domestic relationship, but that the department had had no previous reports of domestic violence involving the two.
