Couple Committed Suicide, Doctors Say

Medical experts say the gunman in last week's shooting didn't kill his wife as authorities first thought.

Instead, they say Justin Meyer and his wife Amber, each killed themselves with a .45 caliber handgun. Dr. Michael Ward of Hattiesburg says he and the Lawrence County Coroner reached that conclusion based on blood stain patterns and the position of the bodies.

Authorities speculate the couple commited suicide because they didn't want to be captured after going on a shooting spree that started in Stone county.
