Police: Pregnant woman killed in Norfolk murder-suicide

NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) _ Police in northeastern Nebraska say a man shot and killed his pregnant girlfriend before killing himself inside a Norfolk apartment unit as officers stormed in.

Norfolk police say the officers were called to the apartment Tuesday morning, where a woman identified as 23-year-old Oriana Arcos was being held against her will.

Police say when they arrived at the apartment, her boyfriend, 23-year-old Marquise Edwards, refused to open the door.

When police entered the apartment using a key, officers heard two gunshots from behind a locked bedroom door.

Police found both Arcos and Edwards with gunshot wounds. Arcos, who was pregnant, was declared dead at the scene. Edwards was taken to a local hospital, where he died.
