Police have identified the two people involved in a Thanksgiving attempted murder and suicide.

Albertville Police said 24-year-old Jacob Corona shot his estranged wife, 28-year-old Mayra Cordova Alvarado, Thursday night at a mobile home on Lydia Street.

Investigators said the couple was having Thanksgiving dinner when they got into an argument. That's when they said Corona shot his pregnant wife five times, and then turned the gun on himself.

Alvarado suffered a gunshot wound to the face and four to her arm. Corona was taken to Marshall Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the head. He later died Saturday afternoon.

Alvarado gave birth Thursday night by emergency C-section at the hospital. The baby and mother are reportedly doing well.
