Clayton County police identified a man who apparently shot his girlfriend Monday before driving to the Jonesboro cemetery and killing himself, police said.
Capt. Greg Dickens said David Wayne Price, 30, of College Park may have been despondent over the recent death of his mother. Price was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound at a Jonesboro cemetery where she is buried and where he also has a plot, Dickens said.
When police went to Price’s home to notify relatives about his death, they found his girlfriend, Shawnte Wells, 25, suffering from a gunshot wound to her head, he said.
Wells is reported to be in “very critical condition” at Grady Memorial Hospital, Dickens said.
