Two men and a woman are dead.
Deputies say an ex-boyfriend shot 24-year-old Paola Aguilera Ayada's new boyfriend Miguel Guerra. She ran out of the house, and the man followed. He shot and killed her before turning the gun on himself. The shooter has not yet been identified.
Investigators say they're looking for the man's pickup truck, which was not at the scene. They've not ruled out the possibility someone else may have been involved. The truck is a dark blue Dodge extended cab with North Carolina tag YSN6247.
Ayada was the mother of four children. Deputies say the shooter was the father of three of them. Ayada and Guerra worked together on the night shift at a tobacco factory. They had just gotten off work when the shooting happened. None of the children were present at the time.
Wilson County Sheriff Wayne Gay told ABC11 that there was a history of domestic violence between the couple. Ayada apparently started the process to get a protective court order against the shooter, but never followed through with it.
Wilson is about an hour's drive east of Raleigh.
