A man in the Kings Park West area shot and killed his wife before dying by suicide on Saturday (May 14), the Fairfax County Police Department reported this afternoon (Monday).

Madeline Bregman, 76, and Michael Bregman, 77, were found deceased inside their home in the 10400 block of Stallworth Court, just north of Robinson Secondary School, when officers stopped by before 3 p.m. for a welfare check, according to police.

The FCPD says both people had suffered apparent gunshot wounds and were pronounced dead at the scene.

“Preliminarily, detectives believe Michael shot his wife, Madeline, before shooting himself,” the FCPD said. “Several spent cartridge cases and a firearm were located within the home. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will be completing autopsies to confirm manner and cause of death.”

Madeline Bregman is the county’s seventh homicide victim of the year, matching the number of murders reported at this point in 2021.
