crime scene

At approximately 5 am yesterday (December 1, 2018), Smyrna Police received a 911 call in reference to a domestic dispute with shots fired at 4028 Wisdom Way. Smyrna Police responded to the scene and discovered an adult male and adult female on the floor of a bedroom. Both were deceased.

Our investigation has led us to believe that the male, James T. Barnes (43), shot and killed his wife, Tiffany Barnes (32), before shooting and killing himself. All four of the Barnes’ juvenile children were home at the time of the shooting but none of them were physically harmed. They are now in the care of family members.
