The couple had been living together at the apartment until VanLaer moved out a few weeks ago. That day, she and family members went back to the apartment to get the rest of her belongings.

During the moving process, investigators said Wyant shot VanLaer multiple times, then shot himself in the head. She was 33.

Wyant, though, was only wounded and was subdued by VanLaer’s family until police arrived.

The investigation into the shooting continues.
