Police release identities of man, woman in suspected murder-suicide in Meadville

MEADVILLE, Pa. -- Meadville police have released the names of a man and a woman involved in a suspected murder-suicide in Meadville Wednesday night.

Meadville police said Twuan A. Hamilton, 30, and Sarah A. Schaff, 28, were found unresponsive inside a home in the 800 block of Brawley Avenue around 6:45 p.m. Wednesday.

Both Hamilton and Schaff suffered a single gunshot wound to the head, according to Crawford County Coroner Scott Schell.

Police were called to the home after Schaff's mother discovered the couple in a bedroom along with their one-year-old child. The child was not harmed in the incident.

Through the preliminary investigation, it is believed that Hamilton shot Schaff before turning the gun on himself.
