A Moraine man shot and wounded his mother Wednesday night, then fatally shot himself following a police standoff.

Police and medics were called around 9:30 p.m. to the 1200 block of Cadillac Street in Moraine on a report of a shooting.

Sgt. Chris Selby said a woman was shot in the front yard as she and her husband were running away from their home during a domestic disturbance involving their son.

The woman went to a neighbor’s for help and was taken to a local hospital for treatment of injuries that are not life-threatening, the sergeant said.

The suspect barricaded himself inside the home. He later was found to have died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot, police said.

He was identified as 36-year-old Nicholas Pearson by the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office.
