From Kenosha Police:

Update: The identities of those involved from last night's death investigation include the deceased victims, 18-year-old Marian Pizarro, 17-year-old Sebastian Perez-Alvarez and 24-year-old suspect Jostin Gutierrez-Pagan. The two surviving victims have been identified as 35-year-old Luz Pizarro-Perez and a 14-year-old juvenile who will not be named.


Original release: On October 19, 2021 at about 10:40pm Kenosha Police telecommunications received a 911 wireless call. All that could be heard on the initial call was a lot of unintelligible screaming. Kenosha Joint Services dispatchers were able to locate an address and dispatched officers to the 600 block of 40th Pl.

Officers arrived on scene to find three people deceased inside the home, along with two other individuals with critical injuries. One surviving victim was transported via Flight for Life to a hospital. The other surviving victim was transported to a local hospital.

This appears to be domestic related incident and we believe the person responsible for the shooting is one of the deceased persons located within the house.

Investigators and evidence technicians remain on the scene and will likely be there throughout the day.

The surviving victims are a 35-year-old female and a 14-year-old male. The deceased victims are an 18- year-old female and a 17-year-old male. The deceased suspect is a 24-year-old male.

“As a community, we are shocked and saddened by this senseless loss of life,” said Kenosha Mayor John Antaramian. “This year we have had 12 homicides and two-thirds of the cases have been results of domestic violence. The current hardships people are facing – including the pandemic – seems to have escalated conflict in some households. If you know of someone in crisis, please consider sharing community resources to find them the help they need.

“A tragedy like this is beyond comprehension,” said Chief Larsen.
