Woman killed in Maplewood shooting IDed; police seek her husband who's a 'person of interest'


Police have identified the woman shot to death in her Maplewood home early Sunday morning as 41-year-old April Marie Tennin. KSTP reports authorities are searching for Tennin's husband, who they say is a person of interest in the case. Police did not release his name, the Pioneer Press notes.

Police and fire personnel responded to a report of a shooting around 6 a.m. near the 1700 block of Woodland Lane and found Tennin dead from "an apparent gunshot wound," according to a press release.

Tennin and her husband had been arguing just prior to the shooting, and he fled the scene afterward. Police say they found his vehicle in the north metro later in the day, but have not yet located him, according to KSTP.

Authorities say three children - aged 12, 15 and 16 - were in the house during the shooting.

Maplewood Police Chief Paul Schnell tells the Star Tribune two of the children live in the home where the shooting took place.

A neighbor tells WCCO one of the children ran into the street yelling, “Help me, help me, my mom is dead, my mom is dead.”

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is assisting with the investigation.
