UPDATE 2: Double-shooting in Cleveland leaves one dead

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND, TN. (WRCB) - A double-shooting in Cleveland has claimed the life of one person. As the details continue to unravel, police don't believe a suspect is on the run.  

Cleveland Police say when they arrived to the Crown Street town home, just after 2 a.m. Tuesday, 24-year-old Annie Ulmer and 28-year-old Steven Lanosga had both been shot.

They were rushed to the hospital, but Annie Ulmer died shortly after. Lanosga has non-life threatening injuries.

Now detectives are trying to get his story on who shot who and why.

Investigators spent the day scouring the town home, looking for clues and interviewing Steven Lanosga in the hospital.

"Obviously there's two sides to this story, but unfortunately we will never hear that one side because she's no longer with us," Cleveland Police Department Public Information Officer Evie West says.

Cleveland Police say they're certain there wasn't a third person involved, and that it had to be either Steven Lanosga, Annie Ulmer or both pulling the trigger.

"Before we step out and say it was a homicide or a suicide, or whatever, we just want to make sure that we have all that together," Officer West says.

Police say the two were dating and originally from Louisiana.

Neighbors didn't know them well. They say they just moved in a few months ago and are both pharmacy techs.

Xavier University of Louisiana lists the couple as graduating this year with Doctor of Pharmacy degrees.

"It was scary to think we heard that right next door," neighbor Hillary May says.

Next door neighbor Hillary May says her roommate woke her at 2:15 a.m. terrified.

"She heard what she thought was a gunshot," May says.

Once the blue lights appeared, word quickly spread throughout the neighborhood.

"I was talking to one of my friends this morning at like four o'clock and she actually heard gunshots," neighbor, Mary Parker says.

Police aren't saying how many shots were fired, but say they're carefully reviewing evidence to compare with Lanosga's account.

"That will help us put all the pieces of the puzzle together and find out what went on in this situation, this house," West says.

Neighbors are also eager to find out.

"It's really sad that happened," neighbor, Luis Rivera says.

"Just trying to figure out what's going on. It's very scary, it being so close to home," neighbor, Andrea Nicholas says.

One neighbor tells Channel 3 she saw Annie Ulmer sitting alone on the stoop, smoking just a couple hours before the shooting.
