MEDINA, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a woman shot in the head by her boyfriend has died a day after her boyfriend killed himself during a three-hour SWAT standoff at the home they shared.
Medina County’s coroner says 45-year-old Rachel Azbell was shot Sunday by 44-year-old Shawn Guillereault and died Monday.
Montville Township police Chief Terry Grice said at a Monday news conference that a teenage girl who ran from the home to a restaurant around 1 a.m. Sunday said she had been assaulted and a woman had been shot. Police say Guillereault called 911 shortly afterward, saying he’d shot his girlfriend after a disagreement.
Police found Azbell wounded at the home. Authorities say Guillereault barricaded himself inside and fatally shot himself during the standoff.
SWAT members rescued two children unharmed from the home.
