Murder-Suicide in Sandy Springs

A man is accused of killing his wife and them himself outside of a baby shower in Sandy Springs.

Edward Shaw, 45, and his wife Lillian, 44, were attending a baby shower at an apartment on Summit Springs Drive when an argument turned deadly, police said.

Witnesses said the Fayetteville couple stepped outside and continued arguing. They said the man shot his wife several times before turning the gun on himself.

He was rushed to North Fulton Hospital, where he died from self-inflicted gunshot wounds.

The couple was in the process of getting a divorce, police said.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Shaw family.
