Two dead in shooting-suicide, Little Rock police report

Posted By on Sat, Aug 1, 2015 at 9:54 AM

Little Rock police say Donna Galvin, 54, was fatally wounded and David Galvin, 58, died of a self-inflected gunshot about 4 a.m. this morning at their home at 6 Glendale.

Police found the Galvins in a bathroom. Donna Galvin had wounds to the upper body. She died after being taken to a hospital. David Galvin had been shot in the head and police said his wound appeared self-inflected. He was dead at the scene.

Donna Galvin's mother, reportedly in poor health, was at the home at the time but said she'd slept through the shooting. Donna Galvin asked her 17-year-old son to call 911 and he did so from a neighbor's house.

Donna Galvin's slaying was the city's 18th homicide of the year.
