MACON, Mo. (AP) - Police in north-central Missouri’s Macon say a man intent on causing harm to his estranged wife shot and killed a man at the home she was visiting before killing himself.

Authorities say 40-year-old Scott Speichinger of Meadville and 38-year-old Jared McKinney of Cairo died at the scene of the shooting shortly before 10 p.m. Thursday.

Police say that McKinney apparently went a residence in search of his estranged wife when he shot and killed Speichinger as that victim was leaving the home. Police say McKinney tried to force his way inside, but the homeowner told another occupant to call 911 and retreated to a safe part of the home. Police say that’s when McKinney shot and killed himself.

Autopsies are pending.
