The shootings kicked off a 17-hour-long standoff with the suspect. Police later found the gunman, a pregnant woman and her teenage son dead inside the home.

Sandra White, 39, and her son Arkeyvion, 16, were identified as the victims.

Police said the gunman, Anthony Bailey, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Merritt was shot in the hand and Webb was shot in the torso and hip, police said.
