10-year-old boy among those killed in Woodhaven domestic situation

- A 10-year-old boy was among those who died during a domestic situation at an apartment complex in Woodhaven Monday night.

Christopher Baltzer was found shot to death, along with a 49-year-old Sherry Multop, who we're told is Christopher's grandmother. It's believed right now the grandmother's boyfriend, Terry Wyatt, was the shooter. He was also found dead.

Family members tell us Multop had been dating Wyatt on-and-off for about 10 years, and they'd all been living in the apartment together for the past six months or so. 

"He shot my sister-in-law and my great nephew," says Harold Garcia. "This is terrible. This is something that doesn't happen to you; it happens to someone else."

Christopher's mother went to get her kids food and arrived back at the apartment before police. We're told she found the three all shot to death inside the living room. 

Police are still looking into the specifics and have not yet confirmed this as a murder-suicide.

Police were first called to the Marsh Creek Apartments, which are near Van Horn and Allen roads, around 7:45 p.m. when neighbors heard arguing and gunshots.

Police do confirm that three people were killed and no suspect is being sought in connection with the shootings. Authorities say a handgun was recovered at the scene and the investigation is ongoing.

3 dead, 1 child in domestic incident

Police are expected to give us more information throughout the morning.

We're told a crisis team will be in place this morning at the school where Christopher attended.
