Wilkes Murder/Suicide on Friday

On Friday, May 11th, at approximately 7:41 P.M. the Wilkes County Communication Center received a 911 phone call about a possible kidnapping on Highway 18 North in North Wilkesboro. Information was gathered that the incident was heading to a residence off of Rock Quarry Road. Deputies from the Wilkes County Sheriff’s Office responded to the residence off Rock Quarry Road and knocked on the door identifying themselves. After the deputies knocked, they heard two gun shots at which time they made entry into the residence and found Lashayna Petrice Hunt (victim) and Rafael Elmont Harper (suspect) with fatal gunshot wounds. At this time it appears that this was a murder/suicide incident however the case is still under investigation.
