North Augusta Department of Public Safety officers were called to Apartment 1701 at the Marion Avenue complex about 10:30 a.m. and found Dakota Cook, 21, with a single gunshot wound to the head. He was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center, where he died from his injuries, Coroner Tim Carlton said in a news release.
Police charged his wife of four years, 20-year-old Terry Cook, with murder. The shooting appeared to be the result of an ongoing domestic dispute, according to the news release.
The couple’s 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. They are in the custody of their grandparents.
