MADISON - Madison police say the man who fatally stabbed two people and injured a third before he was shot and killed by police had made threats to his neighbors in the past.

Police say Saturday that a woman in her 50s was killed Friday after the suspect forced his way into her apartment. Her daughter, in her 30s, also died from her injuries. The older woman's 16-year-old son was injured but survived.

Police say the 16-year-old was able to flee and get help.

The suspect was shot when police arrived. Police say he had mental health issues but the motive is unclear.

Police say the 30-something woman was visiting her mother, and brought along a 4-year-old boy she was babysitting. Police found the boy hiding in the apartment. He was uninjured.
