Police investigate killing, nearby suicide

MILFORD, Conn. (AP) — Police have released new details about what they say appears to be a killing and a suicide involving two men in Milford.

Police say officers responding to reports of shots fired at about 12:45 p.m. Wednesday found 56-year-old Michael Savignano on the lawn of a Hollywood Avenue home with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Officers then saw 48-year-old Vincent Edwards on nearby Midway Avenue holding a hand gun. Police said Edwards went into a house on that street and climbed onto the roof. Police say he fired a shot at the officers before taking his own life.

Police say Edwards was pronounced dead at the scene and Savignano was pronounced dead at Bridgeport Hospital.

Police said Edwards lived at the Midway Avenue house. They do not have an address for Savignano but believe the men knew each other.
