Officers and first-responders arrived at the scene of a murder-suicide on North 7th Street Sunday, July 4, 2021.

A Jones County man called 911 just before shooting and killing an ex-girlfriend then turning the gun on himself at a North Laurel residence on Sunday morning.

Stacy Nicole Moulds, 37, was pronounced dead in her home on the 3500 block of North 7th Avenue just after 9:35 a.m., and 41-year-old Horatio Sanchez Suarez was also found dead inside the house. Both had single gunshot wounds from a handgun, Chief Tommy Cox of the Laurel Police Department said.
