ASSOCIATED PRESS

MANCHESTER, Conn. — Police in Connecticut say a man they suspect killed three women took his own life minutes after officers confronted him.

Manchester police say they arrived on the scene about 9:40 p.m. Saturday, minutes after getting a 911 call. They say the armed suspect was leaving an apartment building carrying a young child. Police say shortly after police confronted the man, he put down the 13-month-old child and shot himself. The child was unharmed.

Police say an officer also fired at the man, but apparently missed.

Authorities say the officers checked the apartment building and found three deceased women in one unit. They apparently had been shot.

Police released no other details Sunday morning but say the investigation is continuing.
