McManus told reporters that a SWAT officer shot the man inside the home at 4400 block of Eisenhauer because although the man had already shot himself, he was still alive and a potential threat since he was armed.

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

According to McManus, neighbors had reported a disturbance in the front yard of the home about 2:30 a.m.

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.

“As the officers entered, he had already shot himself, but he was not deceased at that point,” McManus said. “He still had possession of the gun, causing one SWAT officer to fire one time. Then he was pronounced (dead).”
