Three people are dead and one injured in what police say was a domestic homicide Monday night in Hickory.

Police say three people were killed and one wounded in an overnight shooting in the 366 block of 17th Avenue N.E. in Hickory. One of the people killed apparently died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The Hickory Police Department says officers found 32-year-old Roxanne Mitchem and 34-year old Jessica Fowler shot to death at a residence on 17th Avenue shortly after 9 p.m. Officers also found 37-year-old David Covington dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

Police say Covington was Fowler’s estranged husband. 

A fourth person was taken to the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds. Police say two small children were inside the home at the time of the incident but were not injured.
