The man was a suspect in a domestic violence incident Tuesday.

A domestic violence suspect shot and killed himself while a SWAT team and police negotiators waited outside his Elk Grove home Tuesday, authorities say.

The man had an argument with his wife late Tuesday morning, and held a loaded handgun to her head and pistol-whipped her while their 15-year-old son watched, Elk Grove Police say.

SWAT and other police officials responded to the home, located near Newington and Folkstone ways, in the Foulks Ranch area.
