ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. – Police said a man killed his father and then himself in a murder-suicide Thursday night in north St. Louis County.

The incident happened at about 9:50 p.m. in the 2500 block of Nathan Drive. Police said 51-year-old Bose Durham shot and killed his 76-year-old father, also named Bose Durham. The 51-year-old then turned the gun on himself, according to authorities.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found the men inside a home suffering from gunshot wounds. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

Residents described the neighborhood as quiet and peaceful, saying most of the people who live here are older and retired. During the incident Thursday night, neighbors said they heard the troubling sound of a woman screaming for help in the middle of the street.

“It was probably the lady who lived in the home screaming, ‘I need help. I need help. I’m in danger,'” said Alice Johnson, who lives in the area. “I’ve been here over 30 years, and nothing has ever happened of this nature.”

Neighbor Mark Lotts added: “It was shocking, you know, that it was so close to home. When I first moved here I met Mr. Bose. He was a nice older man.”

Police have not released information about a motive for the shooting. They did say the father and son lived in the same home.
