BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - According to a release by Bridgeport Police Chief John Walker, 48-year-old Kelly T. Zummo and 47-year-old Vincent T. Zummo, a married couple, were involved in what police determined to be an apparent murder-suicide on New Years Day.

Police responded to Oakview Drive at 11:40 a.m. New Years Day for a shots fired call. As they were arriving, Kelly was driving away from her home, crashing into another home on Oakview Drive.

When officers arrived they found Kelly dead with gunshot wounds. Officers quickly issued a shelter-in-place order for the Heritage Farm area.

Officers isolated the shooter to the Zummo residence where they found Vincent dead of an apparent self-inflicted gun shot wound.

Chief Walker says the investigation is still in its infancy. He says they have determined an argument took place outside of the home where multiple shots were fired. Vincent returned to his house where he appears to have killed himself.

Several agencies took part in the investigation including the Harrison County Sherriff’s Department, State Police, U.S. Marshals, ATF, DEA, Bridgeport and Anmoore Fire, and other federal agencies. Chief Walker thanked them and Clarksburg police for their aid during what he described to 5 News Friday as a chaotic scene.

Vincent has been identified as a Senior U.S. Probations Officer. According to his LinkedIn he has served in that role for nearly 20 years.
