Chattanooga (WRCB)-- Police investigators say a man at first threatened suicide then attacked his soon to be wife.
Officers were called to an early morning shooting Thursday at 5010 Harley Lane in the Highway 58 area where they found 26 year old James Hunt shot in the chest. Katie Hunt told officers James Hunt had called her and family members several times threatening suicide. Around 2:00 am, James Hunt arrived at the apartment and attacked Katie Hunt, choking her.
A neighbor heard Katie Hunt screaming and yelling for help. He knocked on the door and asked if she was okay. She told him no and asked for help. The neighbor forced the door open and found James Hunt standing over her with a knife. Police say the neighbor fired, hitting James Hunt in the chest. He was transported to Erlanger where he remains in critical condition. Katie Hunt was also treated for injuries.
