Suspect arrested in murders of mother, daughter at Minneapolis apartment

- A 46-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the murders of a mother and daughter at an apartment in the Marcy-Holmes neighborhood of Minneapolis Saturday night. 

Eileen Mark, 67, and her daughter, Jennifer Angerhoffer, 42, were found dead of gunshot wounds at Mark's apartment in the Holmes Park Village apartment complex on the 300 block of 2nd Avenue Southeast around 10:30 p.m. 

Angerhoffer, who lived in Coon Rapids, had been visiting her mom at the time of the shooting. Neighbors heard the gunshots and called 911.

The suspect was arrested around 9:30 p.m. Monday night several blocks away from the apartment building

According to the Holmes Park Apartment website, the complex is a seven-story, 77-unit Section 8 housing for seniors and disabled people. 

The suspect also lived in Holmes Park Village, in an apartment on the same floor as Mark. Neighbors siad he remained around the apartment complex on Sunday and most of Monday, before officers took him into custody. 

Joe Donovan, a Holmes Park Village tenant, was not surprised to hear his neighbor had been arrested. 

"He went off a lot in his apartment, screaming and yelling," he said. "The cops were here many times for him." 

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner said Angerhoffer died of a gunshot wound to the face and neck. Mark died of a gunshot wound to the chest. 

Prosecutors have until noon on Wednesday to formally charge the suspect.
