Gwinnett police on Friday morning identified the people involved in a domestic dispute in which a man fatally stabbed his ex-wife, stabbed her mother and later killed himself at a gun range.
Around 2:15 p.m. Thursday, police were called to a home on Chris Lake Drive in Lawrenceville and discovered the women - 37-year-old Chheng Voight and 59-year-old Ya Van with stab wounds. The suspect, Chhay Hour, 60, had already left the home when police arrived.
Hour was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the Norcross Gun Club and Range on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard just before 7 p.m., police said.
On Friday, Gwinnett County Police said Van is expected to recover from her injuries.
The dispute began in the house, but spilled out into the street. A neighbor saw the commotion and fired at least one shot at the victim, according to the release.
Two young children were present during the altercation and were released to another family member.
