NC shooting victims ID'd as husband and wife

Authorities say a shooting at a home improvement store in North Carolina was a murder-suicide involving a husband and wife.

Police in the city of Concord on Tuesday identified the victim as 25-year-old Zoua "Vivian" Xiong and the husband as 31-year-old Por Ye Lor. Police say the husband came to the Lowe's store Monday afternoon and argued with his wife. Police say he then shot his wife with a handgun before shooting himself.

No one else was injured. There was no word on how many employees and shoppers were in the store at the time.

A company spokeswoman said grief counselors would be at the store Tuesday for the woman's co-workers.
