According to the McCandless Police Chief Ryan Hawk, the call came in just before 2:30 p.m.
He said a man and a woman got into an argument outside of the home and the man went back into the home.
That’s when Hawk said the woman heard a gunshot and immediately called 9-1-1. McCandless Police and the North Hills Special Response Team arrived at what they believed to be a domestic situation. They treated this as a barricaded situation, not knowing what was happening inside.
When they were able to get into the home, they found the man dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
“Deceased since that gunshot was heart,” said Chief Ryan Hawk. “At this time, we can say this was not a situation where anyone was barricaded.”
