PD: Multiple people shot inside Montgomery Co. home

Police responded to a home in 22000 block of Brown Farm Way east of Sunshine for a domestic disturbance.

The Montgomery County Department of Police says they believe the situation began after the suspect, 41-year-old Christopher Wilson Snyder, had been holding his wife in their home against her will over the weekend.

"Officers learned that three other adults who had also been at the home at the time of the shooting had been able to escape from the home unharmed".

After the shooting, Snyder went back to his house where he barricaded himself inside during an hours-long standoff with police.

Police say negotiators spoke with him via phone for a "couple of hours".

Authorities were searching Snyder's home after he told police that he had explosives, Manger said. Negotiators called him to try to get him to surrender.
