MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — For many in South Minneapolis, it’s hard if not impossible to describe the terrible sadness and shock in wake of Sunday’s triple homicide and suicide.
David and Kjersten Schladetzky were recently divorced; it was finalized in Hennepin County court on June 20.
The horrific scene played out around 10 a.m. Sunday at the home at 27th and Oakland Avenue South. Horrified neighbors witnessed the couple’s two boys, ages 8 and 11, as they were shot out on the yard by their 53-year-old father.
He then went inside and shot his ex wife, the boy’s mother, 39-year-old Kjersten Schladetzky before turning the gun on himself.
Erik Wiltscheck, who lives next door, told the Star-Tribune that he witnessed the father shooting the boys, who were reportedly 8 and 11 years old, before he went into the house. He said he saw the boys run into the yard, screaming.
A police officer in Minnesota this week pulled over a driver who was texting and driving while sending text messages to her friend about a newly enacted anti-texting-and-driving law.
Local news station KUTV reports that an officer from the Eagan Police Department stopped a woman driving a black SUV because he believed that she was violating the state’s new “hands-free” that makes it illegal to hold up your phone unless you are calling 911 during an emergency.
The officer proceeded to write her a ticket and then asked her, “Were you texting about the hands-free law?”
