-- Police, probing a triple shooting that took two lives on Wellington Street early Friday, said 27-year-old Anthony Brown fatally shot 26 year-old Julie Treadwell and then took his own life.
Court records show that Treadwell had filed for an abuse prevention order against Brown on Dec. 19, 2012, alleging that a day earlier Brown had broken into her home, kicked a refrigerator door off its hinges and punched her in the face. A section of the document labeled "Notice to Law Enforcement" warned that Brown may have access to firearms.
Under the order, which expired on Jan. 3, Brown was to stay at least 100 feet from Treadwell and two one-year-old children. Brown and Treadwell had been in a relationship and had two children together, according to court documents.
A third victim in this morning's shooting, a 28-year-old city man, was shot at least twice in the incident,. He was taken to Baystate Medical Center and is expected to survive, Capt. Thomas Trites said.
Trites declined to release the name of that victim.
The incident began shortly before 1:30 a.m. when Brown allegedly forced his way through the back door of 108 Wellington St., police said.
Brown, of 51 Dexter St., was confronted at the top of the stairs on the second floor by the 28-year-old male victim and Treadwell's juvenile son. A struggle ensued and Brown produced a gun, Trites said.
The juvenile then locked himself in the bathroom and the 28-year-old was shot in the arm as he jumped out a second floor window to escape, Trites said.
The 28-year-old landed on the lawn and Brown, firing from the upstairs window, shot again, hitting him in the shoulder, Trites said.
Brown then shot and killed Treadwell inside the home before turning the gun on himself, Trites said.
The juvenile and other children who were inside the home were not injured, and are now under the care of relatives, Trites said.
