Update, Aug. 13:  

An Oakwood Police report shows an Oakwood woman was trying to divorce her husband before he shot her and turned the gun on himself. 

Cameron Roberson, 47, was found with a “self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head” behind his home Aug. 3, according to the report. His wife was treated and released from the hospital, but Cameron Roberson died from his injuries Aug. 5, police said. 

Two Oakwood Police officers responded just before 6 p.m. Aug. 3 to a report of a shooting in progress at Birch Court. 

As the officers were driving to the scene, Roberson told the Hall County 911 center he had shot his wife and was going to shoot himself, according to the report. 

The woman was found on the side of her driveway near a parked truck and appeared to be bleeding from her head, according to the report. 

She was placed on an ambulance’s stretcher and moved up the road, according to the report. 

The woman told the officer and EMS personnel she was “in the process of getting a divorce from Mr. Roberson” and that he had been drinking, according to the report. 

“She stated that when she got home that he immediately started an argument and that when she asked him to leave the premises, he threatened her by stating, ‘I’m going to shoot you!” according to the report. 

She said she ran around the truck to get away from Roberson, according to the report. He followed his wife and shot her in the head, according to the report. 

Roberson called her daughter and said, “He shot me” before the line went dead, according to the report. 

Roberson and his wife both were transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville for treatment, according to the report. 


 

An Oakwood man called 911 on Monday, Aug. 3, to report that he’d shot his wife before turning a gun on himself, Oakwood police say. The woman has since been treated and released from the hospital, but the man has since died. 

Authorities say Cameron Roberson, 47, called the Hall County 911 center to report that he’d shot his wife at their home on Birch Court in Oakwood, about a third of a mile west of Mundy Mill Road. 

“Mr. Roberson … then stated his intention to take his own life,” a news release from the Oakwood Police Department says.  

Oakwood officers and Hall County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the scene to find a 46-year-old woman in the front yard with a gunshot wound to the head. The woman was able to talk with officers and confirmed her husband, Cameron Roberson, shot her, the release said. 

Officers found Roberson behind the home with an “apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head,” still holding a rifle. 

Roberson and his wife both received medical aid on-site and were transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville for treatment, according to the news release. 

Roberson died from his injuries on Wednesday, Aug. 5.
