Sheron Trowers, a 56-year-old woman returning from a trip abroad was fatally shot in the driveway of a Brockton, Massachusetts, home early Tuesday morning.

Trowers worked for the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health at a group home, according to her family.

Her partner, 61-year-old Carlos Brown, was a painter and a marine veteran.

Plymouth County District Attorney Tim Cruz said Trowers was returning from a trip to Jamaica when she was shot and killed in an apparent ambush by 61-year-old Carlos Brown, who then turned the gun on himself.

Trowers and Brown were in a relationship with a history of domestic violence, Cruz confirmed.

“It appears she was ambushed,” Cruz said.

Brockton police received two 911 calls reporting the shooting around 1 a.m. Monday, Cruz said.

The first call came from inside the Ash Street home reporting an unresponsive man. The second came from a neighbor who heard gunshots.

When police arrived, they found Trowers with multiple gunshot wounds in the driveway.

She was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital and pronounced dead, Cruz said.

Meanwhile, Carlos Brown was found with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head in the living room.

Behind crime scene tape, two pieces of luggage could be seen at the edge of the driveway to the home as Trowers had literally just returned from her overseas trip.

Cruz confirmed Towers and Brown were in a relationship but did not say if they were married. She also refused to give details about their alleged domestic violence history.

“I would just say to anyone that potentially is in a life-threatening relationship they should know that there is help,” Cruz said.

“Obviously, it’s a terrible situation,” he said. “Domestic violence doesn’t have a ZIP code. It’s everywhere, unfortunately.”

“If people need help, they can get help and get out of struggling relationships if they exist,” Cruz continued.

Trowers and Brown had a daughter who mourned her lost mother.

“Mommy, I know you can’t hear me, but I miss you. I’m so sorry this happened,” sobbed Sheron Trowers’ daughter, Lauren Brown, who was sleeping upstairs at the time of the shooting.

“I heard a loud noise and then I tiptoe downstairs, and I see his body and I freaked out and called 911,” said Lauren.

“Her uncle just passed away last week. She went down to go bury her uncle, and then she came back and this is what happened to her,” her cousin, Wayne Trowers also said.

Court files show Trowers had taken out a restraining order against Brown 20 years ago.

“Speaking generally, it’s not unusual for cases to be brought, for restraining orders to be brought, and then time goes by and things cool down and restraining orders get dismissed, and people get back together,” said Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz.

“We can continue to say that there is hope out there. People are here to help. We need to get you out of that domestic violence situation.”

“I wish I had called the police more often,” said a Carole Wright, who lives across the street. She said Trowers and Brown lived there for about 10 years.

“I called the police once because she was out in the driveway screaming ‘Someone call the police; someone call the police,’ so I called the police.”
