Jeffco Sheriff's department investigating Center Point murder/suicide


The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department is investigating a murder/suicide that took place early today in Center Point.

Sheriff's deputies were called Sunday around 3:30 a.m. to a home in the 1800 Block of Oakleaf Lane. When deputies arrived on scene, they found a woman dead in the living room, killed by a single gunshot. The victim has been identified as 27-year-old Tekaya Nashon Clark.

The suspect was located in an upstairs bathroom. He was dead with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He has been identified as 28-year-old Brian Jerrell Holcombe.

A witness who was spending the night at the house told deputies she heard glass breaking and saw Holcombe, the victim's estranged boyfriend, come in a side door armed with a hand gun.

Holcombe told the witness to leave the house. According to authorities, Holcombe had been living with Clark until about two weeks ago.
