One woman is dead and two women are wounded in what the Monroe police chief says was a "suicide pact gone awry."
Police Chief Debra Duncan said she found 45-year-old Deborah
McCord Gibson dead in a bedroom of a home about 4:30 p.m.
The Charlotte Observer reported Gibson's daughter, 23-year-old
Jennifer McCord, was found in the garage with a gunshot wound. She
and the third shooting victim, 26-year-old Linda Maples, were taken to Carolinas Medical Center-Union at Monroe. They are in good condition.
Duncan says one of the survivors described the shooting as a suicide pact.
Police say the women agreed to shoot each other.
Duncan says one pistol was used and no one shot herself. No one
else was in the home.
