    Newly released 911 call reveal disturbing details in the moments after an attempted murder suicide of a newlywed couple in Vilano Beach. 

    A neighbor called 911 after hearing gunshots and finding his neighbor, John Reid, with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and the gun still in his hand outside his home. 

    The double shooting happened Thursday around 5 p.m.

    Deputies say Reid's wife of only a few months, Tracy Cunningham, was found inside the home shot, and is now in critical condition. 

    In the 17-minute 911 call, dispatch asks the caller if he noticed any red flags between the couple.

    Dispatch: "Do you know him well?"

    Neighbor: "Yeah I do."

    Dispatch: "Has he been suffering mentally? Depression?"

    Neighbor: "He’s been very distraught with his wife, his wife died February, he remarried right away. "

    The 911 caller also had a woman with him. He told dispatch she was in the home just before the shooting and the couple had been in a "big fight," so she walked outside. 

    Deputies say Reid's first wife died, but he quickly remarried. The Sheriffs Office says Cunningham moved to the area from Tampa. 

    Neighbors say they sometimes heard arguments walking by the home. 

    Reid had no known criminal past in Duval or St. Johns counties.
