When they arrived, officers found a young couple dead in the car. The couple died from gunshot wounds. The husband, Anthony Costner, 24, was shot in the head, face and hand, while his wife, Catherine Costner, 22, suffered a single gunshot wound to the stomach.

Catherine was rushed to a hospital, but she did not survive.

Their 3-year-old daughter, who was in the back seat of the car, witnessed the shooting, but was unharmed.
