Sheriff: Man killed wife, shot self while children watched
NEWNAN, Ga. (AP) — Authorities in Georgia said a man shot and killed his wife and then fatally shot himself as their two daughters watched from the back seat of their car.
WAGA-TV reports Coweta County Sheriff’s deputies said the couple was sitting in a parked car outside of their home Sunday when the man started shooting.
Sgt. Jae Robertson said deputies found the girls, ages 3 and 8, sobbing near the driveway. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, and the man died Monday night at a hospital.
Authorities don’t yet have a motive. Robertson said deputies had never been called to the house before. Authorities didn’t immediately release the identities of those involved.
The station reports the girls are with relatives and have been offered counseling services.
