Investigators with the Sheriff's Office continue to look for a motive in Monday morning's murder suicide.
It began with a 911 call around 12:18 a.m. from a woman who said that two men had died of gunshot wounds in the 23000 block of Highway 99.
When deputies arrived at the scene, they found both Jason Wooldridge and John Few died from gunshot wounds.
According to Limestone County Sheriff Mike Blakely, both men lived at the residence, which belonged to the grandmother of Wooldridge. Blakely said that Wooldridge was the first cousin of Few's girlfriend.
Sheriff Blakely told WAAY 31 that Few was returning to the residence and was on the phone with a friend. He said when Few was pulling into the carport, Wooldridge approached the car.
Sheriff Blakely said that according to the friend, Few said to Wooldridge, "Jason, put the gun down." That's when the friend said he heard several gunshots go off.
Wooldridge then turned the gun on himself, according to Sheriff Blakely.
