The preliminary investigation indicated that Jeffery Ware shot his wife, Jeannine, 47, during an argument at their Booger Hollow Road home, and then turned the gun on himself, said Capt. Mark Wallace of the Floyd County Police Department.Our thoughts and prayers are with the Ware family, especially the young men who are left without parents.
Police are still investigating what led to the shooting.
The woman was holding her 16-year-old son’s leg when she was shot in the back and at least twice more, Wallace said.
The couple’s 14-year-old son was also in the home, but it was not clear late Wednesday where he was at the time of the shootings, Wallace said. It was the 14-year-old who called 911, he said.
The teens were not injured.
Jeffery Ware was pronounced dead at the scene by Coroner Barry Henderson. Jeannine Ware was pronounced dead on arrival at Floyd Medical Center at 5:46 p.m., Henderson said.
