Police Say Dispute Over Their Company May Have Led To Brothers’ Murder-Suicide.

Police say two brothers in their 40’s died today  Monday  in an apparent murder-suicide that began at the Electrix lighting company in New Haven, and ended in a house in Westport.

Police say Gordon Swisha was gunned down in his black SUV, in the parking lot of his lighting business.  Investigators say he was killed by his own brother.

A short time later, Westport police were called to a home on Rustic Lane,  where his parents live.  Daniel Swisha was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound in the head.

Both brothers worked at the lighting company.  Police say there may have been a dispute involving the company.
