Police Name Victims In Brookeville Triple Shooting

Police Name Victims In Brookeville Triple Shooting

Multiple people have been shot dead in a home in Montgomery County, Maryland, police say.

Christopher Snyder, 41, shot and killed the three adults inside a neighbor's house in Brookeville, Maryland, about 25 miles north of the USA capital, on Monday afternoon, police said.

Christopher Wilson Snyder, 41, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to NBC affiliate WRC.

Snyder reportedly pursued his wife to the neighbor's home, where he allegedly shot and killed three people there before turning the gun on himself.

After the shooting, Snyder went back to his house where he barricaded himself inside during an hours-long standoff with police. Residents are also being told to shelter in place. Negotiators called him to try to get him to surrender.

7 miners missing in Poland after tremor hits coal mine
Polish rescue workers say they have found a second body after an natural disaster hit a coal mine in southern Poland. The quake hit the Zofiowska coal mine at about 11 a.m. (0900GMT/UTC) in the southern town of Jasterzebie-Zdroj.

The police found Snyder's body after entering his house. Montgomery County Police Chief Thomas Manger said 911 call-takers could hear gunshots in the background of some of the calls they were receiving.

Police said negotiators were speaking via telephone with the suspect, who refused to come out.

The suspect, who is believed to be known to police, remains at large. His wife told investigators that Snyder had held her captive in their home for the weekend prior, and that she took an opportunity to flee the home on Monday.

"We have had a number of contact with the suspect in the past over a number of different issues", Manger said, according to the station. The three weren't the only ones there at the time of the shooting, however.

Officials have blocked some lanes of New Hampshire Ave. and Georgia Avenue, and are urging drivers to stay away.
