Henderson County Man Allegedly Shoots A Woman And Then Himself

Authorities in Henderson County are trying to piece together what they call a possible murder-attempted suicide.  Around 6:30 p.m. Thursday night, the Henderson County Sheriff's Department was called out to a home on Kingsley Circle near Chandler.  Inside, deputies found Susie Strong, 47 shot to death with four gunshot wounds.  Timothy Mullins, 46 authorities say told them he had accidentally shot himself in the mouth.  Mullins father says he found Timothy after the shooting.

"The door was locked," said Billy Mullins.  "I knocked on the door and he (Timothy) answered.  He said come on in.  Luckily, I have a key that belongs to me.  I came in.  It was was dark in here, and he was lying on the floor face down, and he was coherent.  I walked over there and he said I need help, and then he shoved a pistol over to me."  Billy Mullins says he then noticed Strong dead on the floor.  He did not say what the relationship between Strong and his son was.  Timothy Mullins remains in the hospital tonight.  His condition is unknown, but authorities say he is stable.  No charges have yet been filed.
