A shock­ing tragedy has struck St. Johns Coun­ty, Flori­da, after a fire depart­ment lieu­tenant, 46-year-old Shawn Yarbrough, shot and killed his 34-year-old wife, Andrea Nicole Yarbrough, before tak­ing his own life in a murder-suicide. 

This dev­as­tat­ing inci­dent has left their four young chil­dren with­out parents.

Author­i­ties dis­cov­ered the bod­ies around 9:20 pm on Thurs­day at their home. Shawn, a lieu­tenant with St. Johns Coun­ty Fire Res­cue since 2004, is believed to have killed Andrea before turn­ing the gun on himself.

Both Shawn, a respect­ed fire­fight­er, and Andrea, a finan­cial advi­sor at Gray­bar, were well-regard­ed in the com­mu­ni­ty. Neigh­bors described them as a friend­ly, hap­py fam­i­ly and expressed dis­be­lief at the tragedy.

The fire depart­ment is in mourn­ing, and Sher­if­f’s offi­cials are inves­ti­gat­ing the motive behind this heart­break­ing inci­dent. The com­mu­ni­ty now focus­es on sup­port­ing the Yarbrough chil­dren through this unimag­in­able loss.
