A popular Florida school teacher and “soccer mom” fatally shot herself after she tried to kill her husband during a botched murder-suicide, according to reports.
Holly Fisher, 46, a mother of three, went on her rampage at 12:23 a.m. Saturday inside the North Port house she shared with her husband, Jason “Chase” Fisher, also 46, the Herald Tribune reported.
Her husband was wounded in the hand and chest and rushed to a local hospital, where he was listed in stable condition, the paper said.
Holly Fisher, a sixth-grade teacher at nearby Heron Creek Middle School, then turned the gun on herself.
