The woman was taken to a nearby hospital with a non-life-threatening wound, McManus said.

When uniformed officers arrived, the couple, which had an on-again, off-again relationship, were in the home, McManus said. SWAT officers were called.

SWAT officers were negotiating with the man, but after several hours, they heard a gun fire and forced their way in. McManus said they found that the man shot the woman, who is also in her 40s, in the leg and shot himself.
