NEW BRIGHTON, Minn. — The discovery of two bodies Saturday, Sept. 7, by police in a New Brighton apartment complex has been ruled a murder-suicide by the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Police responded to the Granite Falls at Silver Lake apartments about 7:30 a.m. after a witness called police to report seeing a man with a gun and hearing a gunshot.
Officers found Mainhia Yang, 34, in the couple’s apartment dead of an apparent gunshot wound to the head.
Investigators found her husband, Ge Vang, 51, dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Police had only one previous police call for service to the apartment in April 2015 for assisting the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Police Department with a warrant that was not used.
There was no contact with the residents of the unit.
Prior police contacts with Ge Vang were traffic-related. They included a property damage motor vehicle crash reported in October 2018 as well as a citation issued in December 2014 for driving after revocation and failure to provide proof of insurance.
