MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A man has been charged in the shootings of two women at a Madison group home.

The criminal complaint filed Friday says 25-year-old Ali A. Hassan told police after his arrest Wednesday night, “I shot everyone in that house.”

Hassan is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and attempted first-degree intentional homicide.

Relatives identify the woman who died as 23-year-old Fatoumata Jallow. The other victim was shot several times but survived.

The complaint does not give a motive for the shootings. But Jallow’s cousin, Madison Alderman Samba Baldeh, tells the Wisconsin State Journal (https://bit.ly/2hRz2uX ) the shooting was over a workplace conflict.

The shootings happened at a group home for cognitively disabled people run by REM Wisconsin.

Hassan is jailed on $1 million bail. He’ll have a preliminary hearing Dec. 29.
