PITT COUNTY, NC (WITN) - The Pitt County Sheriff has identified two people involved in what they say is an apparent murder-suicide.

Sheriff Paula Dance identified the two as 25-year-old Laura Whitehurst, who went by her middle name Caitlyn, and 26-year-old Christopher Garris, both of Pitt County.

Investigators believe that Whitehurst was leaving her family's property in a vehicle on Whitehurst Lane through a gate when she was shot and killed with a shotgun by Garris. Garris then turned the gun on himself, officials say.

The sheriff says that they believe that Garris had been lying in wait for Whitehurst.

Officials say that the pair were in a relationship and lived together at one point, but had been separated for several weeks.
