Coroner: Death at Keesler campground a suicide

By The Associated Press

BILOXI — A woman’s death Sunday in a shooting at the Keesler Air Force Base’s off site family campground has been ruled a suicide.

Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove tells The Sun Herald the woman’s name is not being released because of the nature of her death.

Hargrove said Monday the 57-year-old woman had a Louisiana driver’s license, but it appeared she may have had a house in Ocean Springs.

Her estranged husband, a 66-year-old retired Army major, was wounded and required hospital treatment, but his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

A military spokesman said the man and his wife were going through a divorce, and he was staying at the campground when she apparently showed up and a domestic dispute ensued.
