Police in Maryland said Christopher Snyder, 41, killed himself in his home in Brookeville after killing three people and holding cops at bay for hours.

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

According to a police press conference, Mr. Snyder had held his wife hostage over the weekend at their home at 22001 Brown Farm Way in Brookeville, Maryland. Three other people who were at the house at the time, including Snyder's wife, were able to escape, according to WRC.

Police responded to a call about a domestic disturbance east of Sunshine, a town 23 miles (37km) north of Washington DC, with initial reports of multiple people shot inside a local home.

She told police she escaped to a neighbor's home for help around 3:45 p.m. ET Monday. Negotiators called him to try to get him to surrender.

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

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

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

However, police have had "a number of contacts with this suspect in the past on a number of different issues", Chief 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. He followed her to the home where police said he opened fire.
