A Maury County husband shot his wife multiple times before shooting himself Thursday night.

The apparent murder-suicide happened around 11 p.m. inside the couple's mobile home located in the 3500 block of Fly Road in Sante Fe, approximately 15 miles north of Columbia.

Maury County detectives said the husband and wife, identified by a family member as Matt and Sharon Johnson, were both 31 years old.

Three children, ages 13, five and two, were inside the home at the time of the shooting.

Authorities believe the 13-year-old may have witnessed the incident.

The investigation is ongoing.
