A Connecticut food bank manager was identified as one of three people who were found fatally shot at a Windsor Locks home on Friday.
CT Food Bank/Foodshare Volunteer Services Manager Delores Wisdom and Lauren “Lela” Leslie died in the homicide while David Wisdom died of suicide, according to reports.
Police in Windsor Locks, about 15 miles (24 kilometers) north of Hartford, responded to the home shortly before 1 a.m. Friday on a report of multiple people shot.
Police Lt. Paul Cherniack said at a Friday morning news conference that the people found in the home included a couple, adult stepchildren and a visitor.
He said another woman who was taken to a hospital underwent surgery was in critical, but stable condition with multiple gunshot wounds. A second man was found unharmed and is not a suspect, police said.
Relatives of Lauren “Lela” Leslie, 18, of Bloomfield had previously identified her as one of the shooting victims. Family members told the media that Leslie was visiting someone at the home.
Neighbors heard yelling and screaming before the gunshots, but the nature of the argument wasn’t clear.
Windsor Locks is a town of about 13,000 people and home to Bradley International Airport.
CT Food Bank/Foodshare President and CEO Jason Jakubowski released a statement on the death of Delores Wisdom which reads,
“Heartbroken and devastated don’t even begin to describe what we’re feeling today. Delores was more than just our co-worker, she was our friend. She had an energy and a charisma that would light up any room she was in, and her passion for the work that we do was undeniably infectious. It’s going to take us all awhile to wrap our heads around this... but for now, our family simply prays for Delores and hers.”
