Four-month-old Emerie Gailey and her father, 27-year-old Preston Gailey, lost their lives in the incident.
Tragically, Preston’s passing was due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Janie Gailey, aged 19, also suffered gunshot wounds and was airlifted to a hospital in Little Rock for treatment of her critical injuries.
