An Alexandria man was found dead of gunshot wounds early yesterday in Alexandria, one day after his wife was wounded, allegedly during an argument with the couple's son-in-law, according to Alexandria and Arlington County police.
Johnny Lee Wright, 57, was found dead on the street in the 500 block of N. Imboden St., police said. His wife, Mable, had been shot once in the neck on Saturday during an argument at their home at 1429 S. Rolfe St., in Alexandria, according to Alexandria police.
Arlington County police have issued a warrant for the arrest of the son-in-law, Kenneth Eugene King, 34, formerly of Arlington, in the wounding of Mable Wright, Arlington police Sgt. Don Pelasara said yesterday.
Pelasara said police are investigating a possible connection between the two shootings.
King allegedly had argued with Mabel Wright after he came to her apartment looking for her daughter Anne, from whom he is separated, Pelesara said.
Mabel Wright was in satisfactory condition yesterday at Arlington Hospital, according to a spokesman there.
Johnny Wright had worked as a landscaping supervisor at Walter Reed Army Medical Center for a number of years, according to the owner of the apartment building where the Wrights lived.
