ADVANCE, N.C. -- Davie County Sheriff Andy Stokes announced Thursday a Greensboro woman who was hospitalized earlier this week after being shot by her husband in Advance has died.
According to Stokes, Sara Browder Harris, 29, passed away Thursday morning at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital.
Sara Harris was shot around 5:30 a.m. Sunday by her husband, 26-year-old Kirk Walter Harris of Jacksonville, outside his parents' home at 628 Riverbend Drive in Advance.
Kirk Harris was an active-duty Marine based at Camp Lejeune who had recently returned from Afghanistan.
"He was on leave and visiting with his wife at his parents' house," Stokes said.
Newspaper delivery workers called 911 around 6:30 a.m. after finding Sara Harris outside a neighbor's home across the street. She had been shot in the neck and shoulder.
Deputies said Kirk Harris took his own life after shooting his wife. His body was found in the driveway of his parents' home.
Sara Harris was a recent graduate of Leon’s Beauty School in Greensboro. The couple had been married for about one year and did not have any children.
