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. "One of those adults was the suspect's wife", Manger said. 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.

Tactical officers ultimately forced their way into the house around 11 p.m. Police negotiators then made contact with him over the phone to urge him to surrender. "At that point, officers who were outside the home heard a single gunshot", Manger said. She told police she was being "held by him" over the weekend. 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.

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