MENDENHALL, Miss. (AP) - Officials say a man who fatally shot his estranged wife and then turned the gun on himself Saturday is not dead as first reported.

Sheriff Donald O’Cain tells The Clarion-Ledger (https://on.thec-l.com/1ZQyAtH) Danny Harris shot Shonda Harris about 2:40 p.m. outside the Dry Ridge Missionary Baptist Church following a funeral for a friend of Shonda Harris.

O’Cain says Danny Harris walked up to his estranged wife’s vehicle and shot her with a handgun, first in the shoulder and then in the head. He then walked behind the vehicle and shot himself in the head.

It was reported that Danny Harris later died that night at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, but Simpson County Coroner Terry Tutor and Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart said he is still alive in critical condition.
