Sioux Falls, SD

Sioux Falls Police release new information in a murder-suicide in the city on Wednesday.

Police say Kayla Paetow, 20, and John Vigus, 32, were found dead of gunshot wounds just before 2 p.m.  At this point in the investigation, police believe Vigus shot Paetow before taking his own life.

Paetow's brother was upstairs at the time of the shooting and he called 911 after the gunshots.  Vigus' six-year-old son was also in the home at 607 W. 7th Street, but neither saw the shooting.

Investigators say the two were in a relationship and had moved to Sioux Falls from Freeman in the last month.
