 OCEAN SPRINGS, Mississippi -- Amanda Salas' two teenage daughters were home Sunday morning when their mother's former boyfriend pulled into the driveway of their Hunter Drive home and shot Salas' and her current boyfriend, Christopher Prevost, before killing himself with the 9 mm handgun.

Salas died at 1:50 p.m. at Ocean Springs Hospital from a gunshot wound to the head. Prevost suffered a shoulder wound and is expected to make a full recovery. The shooter, 42-year-old Patrick Norman of Hoover, Ala., was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say Salas and Prevost were shot by Norman as they sat in a vehicle in the carport of Salas' home. The two daughters were inside the house, according to OSPD Capt. William Jackson.


Ocean Springs school superintendent Bonita Coleman-Potter confirmed Sunday afternoon that Salas' daughters are both students at Ocean Springs High School. Katelyn Bowman is a sophomore at OSHS, while her sister Sarah Bowman is a freshman.

Coleman-Potter said she is working with school counselors to locate the girls and offer whatever support the district can provide.

"In our community, there will be a lot of love and support for those girls, as always," Coleman-Potter said. "We will cover those children as best we can."

According to her Facebook profile, Salas, 36, worked as a cocktail waitress at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi and as a front desk clerk at the Hampton Inn on Big Ridge Road. She was a graduate of D'Iberville High School.

Prevost, according to his profile, is a bar porter/barback at the Beau Rivage and also works in food prep at Chili's in D'Iberville. He is originally from Melbourne, Fla.

And this is why every time the moms on here accuse battered women of being too weak to leave I laugh at them. Most women, and women's children, are killed when they try and leave not when they stay. Its a rock and a hard place. Poor kids, beautiful woman.
