A man in Georgia is accused of shooting and killing his wife and then murdering his son-in-law during a shootout, police said.
Around 6:10 p.m. on May 5, Gwinnett County police in Georgia responded to a reported domestic incident at a home where a person had been shot.
Police arrived and found a man dead outside a vehicle and a woman in the house.
The victims were identified as Bridget Mack, 61, and Jeremy Santos, 26, according to police.
Investigators say Mack’s daughter, Briana, and her husband, Santos, went to Mack’s home to check on her. When they arrived, the duo found Mack dead. The daughter and Santos were then confronted by Mack’s husband, Bernie Mack.
Bernie Mack and Santos exchanged gunfire, and Santos was killed, police said.
When police arrived, Bernie Mack was still at the scene, and he was taken in to custody. He now faces two counts of malice murder, two counts of felony murder and a host of other charges in connection to the incident.
Police believe an argument between Bridget Mack and Bernie Mack led up to her death. The nature of that argument is still under investigation.
