Emily Young, 24, was found slumped over the wheel of her car Thursday night when police arrived following 911 calls about shots being fired. She was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

“They were having a conversation and at some point the husband became upset and that’s when he fired multiple shots at his wife,” said Orrville Police Chief Dino Carozza, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.

Besides twin girls, the couple also had a two-year-old daughter.

Young had obtained a protection order against Woods because of previous domestic abuse, police said.

He faces charges including aggravated murder, violating a protection order, endangering children and carrying a concealed weapon, according to authorities.

A GoFundMe account has been established for the children.
