Pasquotank County, N.C. – A man and woman were shot to death Monday afternoon in an apparent murder-suicide in Pasquotank County.

The Pasquotank County Sheriff’s Office received a call that someone had been shot in the 900 block of Foreman Bundy Road at 1:39 pm.

When deputies arrived they found 27-year-old Jennifer Lynn Mansfield in the front yard suffering from a gunshot wound. She was airlifted to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The body of 39-year-old Shawn Lamont Everett was found inside the home with a gunshot wound.

The Sheriff’s office says the investigation is continuing but at this time all evidence is pointing to the Everett shot Mansfield and then turned the gun on himself.

The Mansfield had just moved out of the home about two weeks ago and had returned with her mother to retrieve items from the home when Everett came home.
