Late on Saturday, the Lakewood Police Department received an emergency call from a woman at 868 S. Reed Court. She said her husband had a gun -- and unfortunately, he appears to have used it.
When cops arrived, they heard a shot. They immediately called SWAT and evacuated the building via reverse-911. But Karen Kulikowski and Larry O'Rourke were apparently already dead.
