Shakeeyah Elisia Jackson, 34, was found dead with 10 gunshot wounds at the 600 building of the Canal Park Apartments shortly after 11:35 p.m. Tuesday, authorities said. Her death has been ruled a homicide.
Jackson’s partner, 42-year-old David Javon Hall, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Lysek told Daily Voice.
A semi-automatic weapon was recovered from the scene and remains under investigation, Lysek said.
Police arrived at the scene and found that the apartment was locked — a detail that made District Attorney Terry Houck confident in the murder-suicide ruling, LehighValleyLive reports.
Two young children were found unharmed in the apartment and were turned over to family members, the report says.
