A woman was fatally shot Sunday morning in her Maplewood home, and police are seeking her husband for questioning.
The victim, identified by police as April Marie Tennin, 41, was pronounced dead at the home on Woodland Lane, just east of Hill-Murray High School and near the intersection of Larpenteur and Century avenues N., said Police Chief Paul Schnell.
Police and fire personnel arrived about 6 a.m. and found the woman’s body, Schnell said. Also in the home at the time were children ages 12, 15 and 16, Schnell added. Two of the children lived where the shooting occurred, the chief said.
A man believed to be the victim’s husband “left the home shortly after the shooting,” Schnell said in a statement. “Preliminary information suggests there was an argument between the deceased woman and the adult male a short time before the shooting.”
Police later said they followed “a variety of leads” and discovered the man’s car in a northern suburb. They searched a home there, but believe the man left that area in another vehicle.
A weapon was recovered, the chief added.
