LITTLE EGG HARBOR - Ocean County Prosecutor Marlene Lynch Ford says that the man suspected of shooting two people and himself in Little Egg Harbor has been found dead.
The Ocean County prosecutor is calling it a double murder-suicide. Police say Craig Mueller, 45, fired an assault style rifle out his window. Mueller's brother, Bryan, 52, and Cara Ellis, 21, were fatally shot. The prosecutor says that Ellis was just trying to help a neighbor in trouble.
Police say the shooter then turned the gun on himself at a nearby golf course.
The shooting was reported near the corner of Radio Road and Westchester Drive in the Tall Timbers apartment complex.
Schools in the area were under what school administrators are calling "lockup" while authorities searched for the gunman. School officials stood by the doors as parents picked up their children. All buses were canceled.
