Police said a woman shot her husband in their North Augusta Gardens apartment while their four small children were home.
North Augusta Public Safety officers were called to Apartment 1701 at the Marion Avenue complex around 10:30 a.m. and discovered Dakota Cook, 21, with a single gunshot wound to the head. He was transported to Georgia Regents Medical Center where he died from his injuries, Coroner Tim Carlton said in a news release.
Police have charged his wife of four years, 20-year-old Terry Cook, with murder. According to a news release, the shooting appears to be the result of an ongoing domestic dispute.
The couple’s four children, ages 4 months, 1, 3 and 4, were at home at the time of the shooting but were not injured, Lt. Tim Thornton said. The children are in the custody of their grandparents.
