HIGH POINT — A Winston-Salem man accused of stalking a High Point woman shot her to death Tuesday and then killed himself, police said.

Brooklyn Williams, 23, and Andre Cousiamono, 27, both died of gunshot wounds to the head, High Point police said in a news release.

Officers responded to 1408 East Ave. at 2:10 p.m. Tuesday after receiving a call about two people on the porch who were possibly dead. Officers found Williams and Cousiamono dead at the scene. 

Police said in the release officers found a handgun on the porch with Cousiamono and a loaded magazine for the handgun in his pants pocket. 

A vehicle associated with Cousiamono was found within walking distance of the residence, police said. Officers found a holster for the handgun and binoculars inside the vehicle.

Neighbors told investigating officers they heard gunshots in the neighborhood between 9 and 9:30 that morning.

Cousiamono and Williams were not involved in a romantic relationship and were described as prior friends and co-workers. 

Cousiamono was arrested on Aug. 21 on outstanding warrants on charges of felony stalking and cyberstalking and was out on a $15,000 bond.

He also had pending charges of misdemeanor stalking, communicating threats and harassing phone calls. The charges stemmed from incidents in January where Williams was the victim, police said. No further details were released.

Anyone with information related is asked to contact Detective Sellers at 336-887-7834, Crime Stoppers of High Point at 336-889-4000, or via the P3 app.

According to police, in both cases, a man and woman approached the victim inside a retail store and said they had found a large amount of money and wanted to verify that it was not counterfeit. The suspects convinced the victim to go to the bank and withdraw cash to compare to the "found money," police said, with the promise to return all of the victim's cash, plus give them a portion of the found cash.
