Stephanie Byrd had left her husband Bruce Byrd. She had an order of protection against him, which she’d been granted in April. Last Friday, Stephanie went to Bruce’s mother’s house when she thought no one would be there to pick up her things. When she arrived, Bruce unleashed a barrage of bullets. Police say 30 to 33 shots were fired.
By the time a SWAT team burst into the Pittsburgh home, both Bruce and Stephanie were dead. Stephanie, a 44-year-old nurse, had been shot in the head, torso, and neck. After killing her, police say Bruce turned the gun on himself.
