Beloit police investigate man killed in apparent domestic incident

BELOIT, WI (WTAQ) - Beloit Police now say a 30-year-old man turned himself in, after he allegedly killed his father overnight.

Captain Bill Tyler said the younger man walked into the police station around 1:30 a.m. and said he committed a crime at his house.

Police went there and saw his 58-year-old father dead. Tyler said two other people were in the house, and officers woke them up.

The homicide comes a day after the Gazette in nearby Janesville wrote that Beloit was suffering through what it called "its bloodiest period in living memory." It's now 8 homicides in the last 4 months.

Before the incident early today, 6 of the 7 murder victims were killed by guns.

That includes a 16-year-old boy shot in a park in Beloit, which has almost 37,000 residents along the state line with Illinois -- about 10 miles south of Janesville and 20 miles north of Illinois' second-largest city, Rockford.
