The Grant County Sheriff's Office says the death of a man during what they believe was a Domestic Violence incident near Royal City was self-inflicted.

  911 call came in around 7:30PM Thursday night

The GCSO and Royal City Police were called to a home in the 100-block of Grape Drive Northwest in Royal City. Children inside the home made the call and reported a man had shot a woman, and then shot himself.

Authorities say evidence appears to show the man first shot the woman, then turned the gun on himself. An earlier report indicated both victims were airlifted to regional hospitals, but the man later died at Kadlec Regional Medical Center.
