In shocking news, a top Democrat just shot his wife dead and even the media is stunned. This breaking report is spreading nationwide and people are in disbelief about this violent tragedy.
Mississippi House candidate Carl Robinson reportedly showed up at his wife’s place of work and shot her before turning the gun on himself. According to police, Robinson had received divorce papers from his way shortly before the incident.
Robinson’s wife, Latoya, died as medical personnel were trying to place her on a medical helicopter to be life-flighted to a local hospital, while it appears that Robinson died immediately after shooting himself.
“We found the shooter dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head,” said Marshall County Sheriff Kenny Dickerson. “He and his wife were in the process of a divorce. His wife was lying on the floor near his body.”
Robinson was in the process of challenging incumbent Rep. John Faulker in the Democratic primary, which will take place in August — Faulkner will face the remaining candidate and one of the two will go on to the general election.
Americans are trying to make sense of it all, especially Mississippians. Please pray for the family and friends of the Robinsons as they deal with the fallout and grief.
