COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say Columbus officers shot and wounded a gunman who had killed his estranged wife and her brother.

A police statement says officers heard gunshots Wednesday while driving on the city’s south side and confronted a suspect who appeared to be shooting another man in a parking lot.

Police say three officers fired at the suspect to end the confrontation. He was taken to a hospital with a gunshot wound but was in stable condition. The other two people were pronounced dead at the scene.

The Columbus Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1BRD4DD ) reports that the suspect, Roy Harvison, was charged Wednesday night with two counts of murder in the deaths of 29-year-old Jenea Harvison, founder of a preschool company, and her brother, 23-year-old Donell McDonald.

Investigators haven’t identified a motive for the shootings.
