A little before 8 a.m. on quiet Sunday morning at a house in Millry, a small rural community of about 550 people in Washington County, Gary Sullivan knelt on one knee in his dining room and pointed a .308 rifle at a tall window that faced out to a white painted wraparound porch.
He pulled the trigger.
The bullet traveled just a few feet before passing through the screen window and then a wooden slat that formed part of a rocking chair on the porch. Sullivan's wife Mel Ann, who was sitting on the porch taking a call at the time, died immediately, according to Washington County Sheriff Richard Stringer.
