  • Multiple People Shot, Killed in Montgomery County Home: Police

After a seven-hour standoff with the police, a man who held his wife captive over the weekend and killed three people in his neighbor's house, took his own life.

Snyder went to Olson's home and killed Olson, Murphy and Shotwell, before fleeing back to his home at 22001 Brown Farm Way, according to detectives.

The Montgomery County Department of Police says they believe the situation began after the suspect, 41-year-old Christopher Wilson Snyder, had been holding his wife in their home against her will over the weekend.

Three other adults in the home where the three people were killed were able to escape unharmed. Shortly after police officers eventually broke down the door and entered the home, the suspect fatally shot himself.

Police say the suspect is known to them, but they can not confirm if the shooting was domestic related.

Police tweeted at 5:48 p.m. that residents in the area should shelter in place. Police negotiators then made contact with him over the phone to urge him to surrender. He threatened to blow up the building if police come in.

Detectives said they heard a single shot and found Snyder dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The tactical team was searching the rest of the house because, during the negotiations, police learned that there could be explosives and several guns inside the house, Manger said. The three weren't the only ones there at the time of the shooting, however. Snyder's wife is cooperating with the police and was the one who confirmed that she was being held against her will by her husband.
