KINGSPORT — Sullivan County authorities believe a domestic situation played a role in a double shooting in Kingsport Friday afternoon that left a woman dead and her husband in critical condition.

Edith Neeley, 20, 312 New Summerville Road Lot 16, was pronounced dead at the scene as a result of injuries sustained in the shooting, a Sullivan County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman said.

Her husband, Ricky Neeley, 22, same address, was listed in critical condition Friday night at Holston Valley Medical Center, where he is being treated for gunshot wounds.

Two children under the age of two who were in the home when the shooting occurred have been placed by the Department of Children's Services with family members, authorities said.
