Multiple people are dead after a shooting Monday afternoon at a home in Brookeville, Maryland, police said.

His wife fled to the neighbor's house after he held her over the weekend in their own home across the street, Montgomery County Department of Police Chief Thomas Manger said during a news conference.

Three other adults in the home where the three people were killed were able to escape unharmed.

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

Police say negotiators spoke with him via phone for a "couple of hours".




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. "Our negotiators have been speaking with him via phone".

"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. He threatened to blow up the building if police come in. One was Snyder's wife, police say. Snyder also mentioned he had explosives in his house during his talks with the negotiator and hence, the police continued to search his property late into the night.

Manger said Snyder held his wife hostage over the weekend. The three weren't the only ones there at the time of the shooting, however.

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

The suspect, who is believed to be known to police, remains at large.
