Investigators said Friday the double shooting in the Fine’s Creek community of Haywood County was a murder-suicide.

They said James Ferguson Jr. shot and killed Nina Martin before shooting himself.

“We would like to express our heartfelt condolences to the families of the deceased and those in the community as they go through this very difficult time,” Sheriff Greg Christopher said in a news release.

Investigators on Friday released the 911 call in which Ferguson described how Martin was shot and killed. Ferguson's story does not match what authorities believe happened.

Haywood County Deputies discovered Martin, 36, and Ferguson, 56, dead Wednesday at Ferguson’s residence on Buena Vista Lane Wednesday evening.
