Lakewood Police Department announced it arrested a 60-year-old suspect who is accused of shooting a woman at the Parkview apartment complex.

According to a release, Bruce Bagwell was arrested without incident on suspicion of first-degree murder on the afternoon of Feb. 6. Bagwell is accused of shooting his wife, Teresa Bagwell, a 58-year-old woman, inside the apartment complex, located at 9890 W. 26th Ave. Teresa Bagwell was found dead with an apparent gunshot wound.

According to an affidavit from the Jefferson County District Court Office, Teresa's father called her, and Bruce picked up the phone. He told her father that he shot Teresa with a shotgun, and she was dead. Bruce says Teresa asked him to kill her, and he was planning on killing himself after. The affidavit reads that Teresa was diagnosed with brain cancer a month ago.

Bruce surrendered peacefully, according to police.
