Authorities have named the victim and shooter in an apparent murder-suicide that occurred over the weekend in Elkhorn.
Joseph Hensel, 27, and Christopher Lemock, 32, were the two men found dead Saturday inside 220½ S. Wisconsin St., Elkhorn.
The two shared the home in what Police Chief Joel Christensen called a “domestic relationship.”
Hensel and Lemock lived together for about seven years, Christensen told The Gazette. Police continue to investigate motive and the extent of the two men’s relationship.
Investigators believe it was a murder-suicide based on the evidence gathered at the scene, Christensen said.
Police said it appears Lemock shot and killed Hensel on Saturday morning. He then dialed 911, gave the phone to a young girl and went into a bedroom, where he shot and killed himself.
