BALTIMORE TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- A preliminary report from State Police suggests that a Barry County mechanic being investigated for a domestic dispute with his wife, shot himself in the head prior to deputies arriving at his place on Banfield Road in Baltimore Township.

Detective Chuck Christensen says the wound was not life threatening.

He reports that about a half hour after a stand off began, Ralph Elliott walked out and ignored orders, and even a Taser didn’t stop him. When he reached into a front pocket, that’s when a deputy fired 5 shots from a patrol rifle, hitting him twice. He died later at Pennock hospital.

Visitation for Elliott is from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 Friday at Bachman Hebble Funeral home on Bedford Road in Battle Creek. Services will be held their Saturday at 11 a.m.
