Julie Treadwell Obituary, Death – I’m really sorry to hear about this tragic incident. Incident described a triple shooting that occurred on Wellington Street in Springfield. According to the police investigation, it appears that 27-year-old Anthony Brown shot and killed 26-year-old Julie Treadwell before taking his own life. Another man, whose identity has not been disclosed, was also injured in the shooting but is expected to survive.
Court records reveal that Treadwell had previously filed for an abuse prevention order against Brown on December 19, 2012. In her filing, Treadwell alleged that Brown had broken into her home, damaged property, and physically assaulted her. The court document included a notice to law enforcement, indicating that Brown might have had access to firearms. The order, which required Brown to stay at least 100 feet away from Treadwell and their two children, expired on January 3.
On the morning of the incident, Brown reportedly forced his way into the residence at 108 Wellington St. around 1:30 a.m. At the top of the stairs on the second floor, he encountered the 28-year-old male victim and Treadwell’s juvenile son. A struggle ensued, and Brown pulled out a gun. The juvenile locked himself in the bathroom for safety, while the 28-year-old man jumped out of a second-floor window to escape, sustaining gunshot wounds in the process.
After landing on the lawn, the injured man was shot again by Brown, who was firing from the upstairs window. Despite the injuries, the 28-year-old is expected to survive. Tragically, Brown proceeded to shoot and kill Treadwell before taking his own life.
Fortunately, the other children who were present in the house at the time of the incident were unharmed. They are now under the care of relatives, according to Captain Thomas Trites of the Springfield Police. The investigation is ongoing, and authorities are likely working to gather more evidence and understand the factors that led to this devastating event.
It’s important to remember that incidents like this are deeply distressing and have a significant impact on the families and communities involved.
