2 Dead In Apparent Murder-Suicide In Prospect Park

By Dan Wing

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Local police say a man and a woman are dead after what appears to be a murder-suicide Sunday.

Investigators say it began in Prospect Park just before 4 p.m. when police were dispatched to a reported shooting on the 1300-block of Fletcher Avenue.

Once there, a 31-year old woman was found with gunshot wounds to her chest and face. She was pronounced dead on the scene.

A witness had police on the lookout for a man who left the scene in a van, and about two hours later, that van was found by police on Mario Lanza Boulevard in Southwest Philadelphia. Inside police found the man who was identified as the shooter, 38-year-old Anthony Serody, dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

The investigation is ongoing.
