Gulfport Police Investigating Murder-Suicide

A Gulfport man shot and killed another man Friday evening, before turning the gun on himself. Now investigators are trying to figure out why.

The bodies of 46 year old Joseph Raymond King of Gulfport, and 53 year old Dennis Devilbiss, also of Gulfport, were found shot to death inside an O'Neal Road apartment complex in Orange Grove. Harrison County Coronoer Gary Hargrove would not say which man was the gunman and which was the victim. Those details will likley come after an autopsey this weekend.

After hearing shots, neighbors at the O'Neal Road Apartments called police, who quickly sealed off the area around the apartment. They tried to talk the gunman out. Eventually they forced their way in and found both men dead.
