A man recently separated from his wife attacked a home Sunday morning, killing her and his mother-in-law before taking his own life, Police in the United States said.

Before they arrived, Nwamu forced his way inside the home. Detectives were met with gunfire from the house and were forced to take cover, while an emergency response team and hostage negotiator were sent to the scene.

“During the course of the negotiations with Udoamaka, a single gunshot was heard,” the officer said.

Deputies also found the bodies of Nwamu’s estranged wife, 24-year-old Kaliyah Nwamu, and her mother, 46-year-old Nikita Green.
