A love triangle is being investigated as the possible motive for what Hamilton Police are now calling a double murder suicide in Stoney Creek.
Staff Sergeant Paul Hamilton says police have received information that may have been the motive for the violence in home on Valrose Drive Saturday night.
37 year old James Milroy has been identified by police as being the shooter, adding he was in a relationship with 19 year old Aerlaena Smith.
Milroy’s bother, 34 year old Michael, was also shot to death.
Their 70 year old mother Gina was seriously wounded and remains in hospital.
Sergeant Hamilton says a handgun, legally owned by James, was the weapon used.
