The suspect died after being caught with what police said was a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Richmond County sheriff’s deputies found a man and a woman dead around 4:18 a.m. in the 3600 block of Stanton Court.
A second woman was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center where she was in critical but stable condition as of Sunday afternoon, Sgt. Monica Belser said.
A suspect, identified by police as Cedric Tobias Harris, 31, was captured in McDuffie County. Deputy Coroner John Ansley said he died as a result of his wound around 5:40 a.m.
Authorities say Harris is believed to be the ex-husband of the slain woman.
Investigators say they don’t believe there are other suspects linked to the shooting at this time.
The names of the victims had not been made public Sunday afternoon.
In March 2012, The Chronicle reported that Cedric Tobias Harris was indicted on two counts of aggravated assault.
