Authorities release names of men in murder-suicide case

Posted: Updated:

PRAIRIE CITY, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have identified the man who investigators say fatally shot another man before taking his own life in Prairie City.

On Monday police identified the gunman as 32-year-old Chris Tetrick and the man he shot as 30-year-old Harmon "Wes" Wright III.

A Prairie City news release says Tetrick called 911 early Sunday morning to say he'd just killed a man. The release says Tetrick told the dispatcher that he was getting a divorce and that he'd found the man in the bed of Tetrick's wife. Officers later found Wright's body in the basement and Tetrick's in a detached garage at the residence. Police say no one else was in the house when the shooting occurred.

Authorities have ruled the case a murder-suicide.
