Authorities say they think a 25-year-old man killed his girlfriend, then turned the gun on himself outside a home in Wake County.
Investigators said Jennifer Callighan was found dead inside the home around 10 a.m. Friday, and her boyfriend, Kyle Miller, was dead outside.
Neighbors told deputies that Miller was firing at Callighan as he chased her outside the home south of Garner. The witnesses say they heard about seven shots.
State records show Miller was convicted in October of assault on a female and violating a domestic violence protective order and was serving 18 months on probation. It wasn't clear who the victim was in that case.
