The fatal double shooting was a domestic homicide

CUMBERLAND, RI – Cumberland Police have announced the results of an investigation into a fatal double shooting last month that killed a married couple identified as Courtney and Eric Huard.

According to a statement from Cumberland Police Chief Matthew Benson, the investigation determined that the June 22 shooting was a domestic homicide.

Benson said Eric Huard, 51, shot and killed his wife, Courtney Huard, 42, before turning the gun on himself.

The couple lived together in their Birchwood Drive home with their three children, who were found unharmed inside the home after the shooting at around 6.40am on June 22.

The investigation was conducted with “diligent efforts” by detectives from the Cumberland Police Department as well as the Rhode Island State Police, the office of Rhode Island Attorney General Peter Neronha and the Office of the Physician state coroner, according to Benson.

“We are reminded that there are three children who have lost their parents and two families who are devastated by the loss of loved ones,” Benson said. “Our thoughts continue to be with them at this time.”
