SULLIVAN COUNTY, TN (WJHL) -

Today, Sullivan County Sheriff Wayne Anderson said an investigation has revealed more information into a domestic dispute that ended in deadly gun fire. 

Sheriff Anderson says Edith and Ricky Neeley were arguing, especially in the days leading up to Friday's shooting on New Summerville Road in Kingsport. 

Investigators believe Ricky shot his wife once before shooting himself. Police still hope to talk to Ricky to determine if that's what happened. He remains in fair condition tonight. 

Two children: a 7-month-old baby, and 2-year-old were in the home at the time of the shooting.

"The whole thing occurred in the bedroom and that's where the baby was. The baby was on the bed," said Sheriff Anderson.


Sheriff Anderson says Ricky shot Edith in the head and then turned the gun on himself.  
"We know for a few days that they've been arguing. She wanted out of the marriage and he didn't want out of the marriage," said Anderson, "when officers arrived on the scene, the little two year old was running around with a shell casing in their hand."
It's an image that most people could never comprehend, but it's the reality for two infants.
"We see it a lot. When it comes to something like this involving kids, it makes it even more tragic," said Anderson.

Gena Frye is the executive director with the Children's Advocacy Center in Sullivan County. She says it will be difficult to tell how the event affected the two children.

"It's very hard to say if they'll remember. It depends on the child," said Frye, "the child may not have issues at this moment in time but they may surface later on."
"We can just always hope that the children involved in this can not have any memories that this happened."
