OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. — Police say a shooting in an Ocean Springs neighborhood left two dead and one man hospitalized.

Lt. Detective Bruce Spearnock tells The Sun Herald ( ) 42-year-old Patrick Norman, of Hoover Ala., is the man police identified as having shot his ex-girlfriend and her current boyfriend at the woman's house on Sunday.

Spearnock says 36-year-old Amanda R. Salas and 30-year-old Christopher Dale Prevost, both of Ocean Springs, were in a vehicle when Norman pulled up behind them, approached their car and shot them both with a 9mm handgun. Police say he then turned the gun on himself.

Police Capt. William Jackson said Salas had two teenage children in the home at the time of the shooting.
