A domestic dispute ended with a mother, her son and her husband dead after an overnight shooting in Nokomis, which is being investigated as a double murder-suicide, according to the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were called to reports of a shooting at a home in the 400 block of Kenwood Avenue in Nokomis at 11:13 p.m. Monday, according to the sheriff’s office.

The preliminary investigation by officials showed Anthony Isrig, 27, and his wife, Susan Rutigliano-Garcia, 49, were involved in a domestic disturbance in front of their home at 410 Kenwood Avenue, according to the sheriff’s office.

A neighbor told officials they saw Isrig punch Rutigliano-Garcia, then they both ran inside, but neighbors could still hear yelling — then gunshots — coming from the home.

Another neighbor, a 27-year-old man, went up to the door to offer help. The door opened and a 17-year-old girl came outside with a gunshot wound and “significant injuries,” according to the sheriff’s office.

Isrig walked outside, got in his car and drove into the neighbor, the sheriff’s office said. He also hit a car parked across the street.

Isrig then walked back into the house. Neighbors reported hearing another gunshot.

Rutigliano-Garcia and her son, Matthew Beagle, 18, were fatally shot by Isrig inside the home, according to the sheriff’s office.

Isrig was found dead from apparent gunshot wounds and was holding a shotgun, the sheriff’s office said.

The 17-year-old girl was flown to a local hospital Monday night in critical condition. Officials said Tuesday she is expected to make a full recovery.

The neighbor did not suffer serious injuries.

Officials said there is no immediate threat to the public.
