Onslow County, NC: Murder-suicide appears to be result of lover's triangle

ONSLOW COUNTY, NC (WITN/WECT) – Police in Jacksonville are investigating a murder-suicide that happened late Thursday night. Apparently, it was the result of a lover's triangle. The victim may have posted a warning on Facebook that something was about to happen.

WITN is reporting Jason Eimer, 30 of Jacksonville, and Christopher Apger, a Marine from Camp Lejeune, were killed in the incident.

According to WITN, police received a call just before midnight. Several officers responded and had a "significant presence at the New River Harley-Davidson dealership" in Jacksonville.

Police told the media outlet they found Eimer in a parking lot when they arrived to the scene. He had been shot several times. They say Apger shot himself as police arrived.

It is unclear at this time why the shooting happened, but Jacksonville City Manager Dr. Richard Woodruff told WITN Apger was deployed and discovered when he returned that his girlfriend had a relationship with Eimer.

On what appears to be Eimer's Facebook page is a post made before the shooting that reads:

"If something happens to me tonight i love you all...there are people that have certain information that will help solve any uncertaintees. Please pray for me, i'm doing something i don't want to do. This isnt a joke, please pray for my safety!"
