Not seeing many details but this was posted on Twitter.
That's not good to hear.
Please holler out, let us know you weren't there today....

Is this where @Millie shoots?

She was in chat ~4:30p and said she had to go clean guns to be ready to go shooting on Thursday. Didn’t indicate she was going today.
I was there today. Just got hit up in PM, first i heard of this...holy cow
Dang, I was just in there wandering about last week. Thats crazy.
Hate to see stuff like this
that place gets way crowded for me, same with guns plus ..
I’m at the range at GP almost every weekend . You do some scary stuff
Update from Fayetteville Observer....
It's sad folks decide suicide is their best option but to go and do it using a business’s location and inventory is pretty selfish.
I’m assuming she rented a gun because if she had her own, why go to the range to kill yourself.
Years ago while living in Knoxville, I was headed to the range one morning when the radio told me there had been a shooting there. Turns out a lady rented a gun, fired five or six rounds at a target, then turned it on herself.
The range was closed down less than three months later. It reopened under a new name, and subsequently closed again, twice in the next year or so.
Hope Jim's has a little more survivability
It could have been an accident.
They likely do. This isn't the first time someone has been shot there...
Fairly sure there's been a suicide there as well.
First thing that pops into my mind was a ND while taking a selfie or some other shenanigans... females don't typically take one to the head to off them selves. Not saying it never happens, just not statistically common.
Hell I might have shot with u a time or 2..
True that women are less likely to shoot themselves in the head. Although I shoot at indoor ranges I like to look a bit after assigned a lane. Rookies make me extremely nervous. Watching others clear a malfunction is almost unbearable.
2 seperate indoor ranges in Wilmington have had rental gun suicides in the last few years...
Definitely a selfish act but if they are at that point mentally, probably not a big concern.
Everything about suicide is selfish... It leaves way more messes then the range floor.
I know of at least one indoor range that has a "no single shooters" policy if renting a firearm. Apparently, suicide is a solo sport.
This is why I prefer to go in there at 9 am, and usually so. Not a lot going on at that time.
This is an awful thing that's happened, and will bring up some stuff for many of us, I'm sure.
I always buy memberships there,, I’m gonna dang sure ahoot enough to pay for it. Im go at least 3 of 4 weekends a month. My range bag is very distinctive ( website acting wacky, I’ll post a pic later)
"While homicide detectives initially took up the case, Fayetteville police said Wednesday the death was ruled a suicide."
Every time something like this happens, it reminds me of that story in 2009 of the lady who took her son to the range, shot him, then herself claiming she was the Anti-Christ and she had to save him and end her life for 1,000 years of peace.
People who knew her and loved her, family and friends, will probably never get over this. I pray for strength for them all.
