Man remains in critical condition

Gwinnett County police will seek criminal charges against a man who allegedly shot and killed his wife and then turned the gun on himself Sunday morning.

Police announced they had obtained arrest warrants for Michael Jason Marin, 44, on charges of aggravated assault and felony murder in the death of his wife, 44-year-old Desiree Ann Jean Marin. He remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Around 10 a.m. Sunday, officers were called to a home in the 2600 block of Ivy Stone Trail, in a neighborhood not far from Buford, police said in a statement. When they arrived, they found Desiree Marin and her husband with gunshot wounds.

Both were rushed to a hospital, where Desiree Marin died.

Investigators believe an argument broke out between the couple that resulted in Michael Marin shooting his wife and then himself, police said. A school-aged child was in the home at the time but was not hurt, according to the statement.

No other details were released about the incident.
