Murder-Suicide

Just after 11:30 a.m. this morning, Greenville authorities were dispatched to the corner of Hughes and Highway 82 East in reference to a family welfare concern.

The subject told authorities they made a visit and made phone calls to reach a family member at the C&R convenient store but got no answer.

The store was locked from the inside so authorities then dispatched the Greenville Fire Department to apply forced entry.

Once inside the business, officers located a 54 year old man and a 49 year old woman who appeared to have suffered gunshot wounds.

Paramedics were dispatched along with the Washington County Coroner. Both suspects were declared dead on scene.

Based on the preliminary investigation and evidence collected at the location, police say it appears the male subject shot the female victim, before turning the gun on himself.

The motive appears to stem from a domestic situation.

The two victims were identified as husband and wife, 54 year old Christopher Grossley and 49 year old Robbie Walker- Grossley.
