Three children who were at the residence were safely evacuated and are now with family, according to officers at the scene.
“This is still a very active situation so we are not providing any more information right now,” Railsback said at the time.
A news videographer at the scene said the suspect shot and wounded his wife who was taken by ambulance to a hospital. Police entered the home sometime after midnight and found the suspect dead.
Detectives remained at the scene overnight as the investigation continued.
