An off-duty California Highway Patrol officer is suspected of fatally shooting his wife before turning the gun on himself following a late-night argument at a sports nutrition store.

Brad Wheat, 45, reportedly killed his wife Mary, 42, and seriously injured the 44-year-old store's owner after he opened fire at the shop in Martell, Amador County, California, on Monday evening. He then killed himself.

The Amador County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to a 911 call from the owner, who said he was locked inside his store along with a woman and that her husband was banging on the door.
