The deaths of a Lejeune Marine and a Jacksonville man are under investigation, Jacksonville police said Friday.

The bodies were discovered late Thursday night. Jacksonville police were notified that someone was shot in the parking lot of Navy Federal Credit Union at 422 Yopp Road.

JPD, along with the N.C. Highway Patrol, found a black Dodge truck in the parking lot backed into the building. Jason Eimer, 30, of Jacksonville, was found dead inside the truck with multiple gunshot wounds, according to a release.

JPD.were then notified that a shooting suspect, Christoffer Apger, 32, of Jacksonville, was at the New River Harley Davidson at 2394 Wilmington Highway. As police officers arrived, Apger walked to the rear of the building and shot himself.

A Marine Corps spokesman confirmed that one of the men involved in the shooting was a Marine, but he could not confirm whether that man was Apger.

However, neighbors said Apger was an enlisted Marine from Texas stationed on Camp Lejeune who recently returned from a deployment to Afghanistan.

“He was a good man,” neighbor Bill Thomas, a retired Marine who’s lived in the area since 1985, said of Apger. “All he ever talked about was his daughter.”
