Original Release (June 12, 2017 3 p.m.):

Police have discovered the bodies of a man and a woman inside a home in the 2100 block of Rockwell Court following an hours-long barricade in Catonsville.

Police were initially dispatched around 10:19 a.m. after a 3rd-party caller informed 911 that they believed there was a suicidal subject inside the home with a gun.
