2 dead in retirement home shooting

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Police have released the names of the man and woman killed in the apparent murder-suicide at a Milwaukee retirement home.

According to police reports released Tuesday, authorities went to the Alexian Village retirement community on the city's northwest side Monday on a report of two shooting deaths.

They found 87-year-old Esther Dawe dead in her apartment. She had two gunshot wounds to her head. Right next to her, police found her neighbor and friend, 83-year-old John Camm, dead in his wheelchair. He also had a gunshot wound, and police found a revolver on the floor between his feet.

A police report says Camm lived down the hall from Dawe and the two had been friends for about five years, but Camm wanted a romantic relationship.
