BERMUDA RUN — Authorities said a U.S. Marine based at Camp LeJeune shot and critically injured his wife before killing himself in front of his parents' home.
Davie County Sheriff Andy Stokes said the body of 26-year-old Kirk Harris of Jacksonville was found in his parents' driveway about 6:30 a.m. Sunday. Deputies found his wife across the street with gunshot wounds. She was in intensive care Sunday afternoon at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
Stokes said the two had been arguing before the shooting. Harris' parents were not home. The couple had been staying there over the weekend. Deputies said they met there when he was on leave.
Authorities said Harris had recently returned from Afghanistan. The couple had been married for about a year.
