Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Captain Liz Scott told the paper that Sheriff’s Deputy J. Saunders arrived at the home around 10:20 am and saw Jolynn Norris lying in the doorway with her husband standing over her body holding a handgun.

Norris told the Deputy “‘I killed her. I killed her,'” according to the report. And then Norris stepped back into the mobile home and fired one shot into the floor and then fired another shot into his head.

On her Facebook page, Jolynn Leon Guerrero Norris describes herself as follows:

I am a born and raised “Island Gurl”, and although i am away from home (guam), i remain a true “chamorrita” growing up on a lil town not so far away and not at all that different (Dededo). i am a “go with the flow” kind of gurl. i create no fricton unless called for. i am easy to get along with and wish no harm on anyone (just don’t provoke me). i am not a sassy gurl…i just like to batt my eyes and snap my fingers (a way to get attention, not always the kind i like but so what!) i am 5ft.4inc tall and weigh 110lbs. (who r u to kno’ my true height and weight?)thought so. i am not afraid of change and i take challenges well…i of course get frustrated but, I do not give up. if you like ruunning, i’ll race you (warning:i’m rather fast). “Lynn Lynn” is my nickname, “Din Din” is another, but i will forever be mommy and daddy’s one and only “Dare devil”. .. .. .. .. .. .. ..

The couple had 3 children aged 11 months, 2 and 4. All of them were at the mobile home when the shooting occurred.

Capt. Scott told the paper that an emergency protective order that prohibited the Norrises from seeing each other was in effect for 72 hours. But that order expired Thursday morning when Joylnn Norris came to the home to pick up some property.

The couple then began arguing and, Capt. Scott says, “the 4-year-old grabbed the 2-year-old by the hand and ran across the street after seeing their father get the gun.”  The 11-month old remained inside the mobile home, but was not injured.


Capt. Scott could not provide the paper with any details about the protective order or the temporary separation.

The Free Lance Star reports that the children were turned over to social services, although its possible they may soon be placed with relatives.
