A former Puerto Rican police officer reportedly shot and killed his 33-year-old wife before turning a gun on himself during a standoff with police in Florida on Wednesday.

According to WFLA-TV, the man—identified as 38-year-old Jason Ramierez Comas had come to the United States from Puerto Rico after he accidentally killed his partner in a shooting.

Deputies with the Polk County Sheriff's Office responded to the home after a 911 call and quickly determined that it was a hostage situation. SWAT was called and hostage negotiators tried to work with Comas for a period of time before gunshots rang out.

Deputies entered and found the couple dead.
