Former officer suspected in murder-suicide

A former Burlingame police officer shot and killed a 26-year-old man at close range then killed himself about 40 miles northeast of Sacramento on Monday, authorities said.

Morris Greenberg, 37, shot Anthony Dumont with a handgun during an argument inside a residence in Placerville, according to the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office.

Greenberg, an 11-year veteran of the Burlingame Police Department, died after shooting himself in the head, said El Dorado Sheriff’s Sgt. Bryan Golmitz.

Greenberg worked for Burlingame from Aug. 12, 1996, to April 2, 2007, said Burlingame Capt. Mike Matteucci. He retired last year in “good standing.” Golmitz said the motive for the shooting was under investigation but appeared to be domestic issues.
