POLICE: Man kills wife then himself outside Cane Run Road gas station

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a husband and his wife are both dead after a shooting at the Thorntons on Cane Run Road near the Shawnee Expressway.

Scott Joslin Sr., 40, and Christina Joslin, 43, of Louisville died as a result of gun shot wounds. Police say Scott Joslin shot his wife in the parking lot of the gas station, and then turned the gun on himself.

Police say the pair arrived at the gas station separately and exchanged words. She then made her way into the store to make a purchase as he waited outside.

"She was just in and out of the store talking on her cell phone, while he was mumbling on the phone," said Donald Clay who claims he was standing behind Christina as she checked out. "We didn't see any arguments, we just heard a pop, pop, pop."

Police say Christina died on the scene, while Scott died at the hospital Sunday afternoon.

The Jefferson County Coroner's office said the couple was separated. Officials say it appeared the victim had her car packed up and was possibly in the process of moving out of the home the couple shared in East Louisville.

Police say there were several witnesses to the shooting.

LMPD Homicide detectives are investigating the case.
