GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove has identified the two people who were found dead in a red Toyota Camry in Gulfport on Monday.

Hargrove said Denise Fayard, 33, died from a gunshot wound to the neck, and Percy Fayard, Jr., 52, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The case was ruled a murder-suicide.

Gulfport Police Chief Leonard Papania said firefighters were flagged down near the intersection of 20th Avenue and 30th Avenue around 5:30 p.m. Witnesses on the street pointed them in the direction of the car. That’s where investigators found the bodies.

Hargrove said he believes Denise and Percy were married but separated.
