Triple murder suspect kills himself after standoff, police say

The scene at a Brookeville Md. home where multiple people were found dead Monday

A gunshot was then heard, and Mr. Snyder was "located deceased in his home from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound".

Olson's sister told The Washington Post that the incident began shortly after Olson allowed Snyder's wife inside the home to try to help her.

Police responded to a home in 22000 block of Brown Farm Way east of Sunshine for a domestic disturbance.

Police later identified the victims as resident Mary Ann Olson, 66; Danny Lee Murphy, 70, of Brandon, South Dakota; and Craig Harold Shotwell, 54, of Wards Chapel Road in Owings Mills. Two others and Snyder's wife escaped unharmed.

According to a police press conference, Mr. Snyder had held his wife hostage over the weekend at their home at 22001 Brown Farm Way in Brookeville, Maryland.

The police were alerted to the situation after receiving a number of 911 calls at 3:44 p.m. EDT, some of which had sounds of gunshots going off in the background.

Authorities say the gunman, in some sort of dispute, followed his wife from their house to the house where the murder-suicide happened. A contractor's van remained parked outside of the home where the three were killed. The suspect was on the phone with negotiators.

Snyder was on the phone with police negotiators when police breached his home, Manger said.

"She reports that she had been held by her husband over the weekend and took an opportunity to run out of the house and run into the neighbor's house", Manger said.

His last words over the phone were: 'Did they just break in the front door?'

Manger said the suspect is known to police.
