Deputies determined the suspect was the victim’s husband, 38-year-old Anthony Davis.

Officers said he barricaded himself inside the home and the sheriff's office Special Response Team was notified and responded to the home.

Authorities said they made several attempts to contact Anthony Davis but were not successful. That is when officials entered the house and found Anthony dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police said the incident is still under investigation. Deputies have not said what they believed led to the incident.
