The female victim of a weekend murder-suicide was a soldier stationed at Fort Gordon, post officials confirmed Monday in a statement.

Capt. Angela Lee was signal officer in the Army Reserve assigned to the 15th Regimental Signal Brigade, the statement said. She worked as an operations officer for satellite communications supporting training at Fort Gordon.

“On behalf of the entire Fort Gordon military community, we extend our deepest sympathy to the family, friends and loved ones of Capt. Lee,” the statement said. “We are prepared to assist her family in any way possible as they cope with this tragedy.”

Lee was killed by her by her husband, Timothy Lee, during an argument Sunday morning, the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office said Sunday. Timothy Lee then turned the gun on himself and took his own life.

Autopsies will be performed at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation in Augusta on Tuesday, Deputy Coroner Kenneth Boose said.
