BUFORD, Ga. (AP) — Police in Georgia say a park ranger who was shot in the stomach was wounded by the same bullet that killed a suicidal woman.
Authorities said D.P. Wright, a ranger for the Army Corps of Engineers at Lower Buford Dam Park, was shot the night of June 26 when he went to tell a 34-year-old woman sitting in a truck that the park was closed.
Gwinnett County Police Cpl. Jake Smith says investigators found a single bullet casing on the scene. Authorities believe that the woman and the 70-year-old ranger were both wounded by a single bullet.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Monday (http://bit.ly/15bXR7e ) that Wright’s family expects him to be discharged from the hospital sometime this week.
