ATHENS, GA (CBS46) -

Police say 27-year-old Nicolas Head shot and killed 28-year-old Quintavia Wade, a mother of three. Wade was the cousin of Head's children's mother, according to authorities. 

Officers were called to a domestic violence call on Summerbrook Circle around 4 p.m. Monday. When Officer Edward Herron arrived, police say Head shot at Herron.

The officer and Head exchanged shots before Head shot himself in the head, according to authorities.

The shooting was actually the second call from Monday at the apartment as police say they were called earlier around 11 a.m. due to a domestic dispute between Head and his children's mother, Courtney Williams. But when police arrived earlier, they say Head had taken off. 

Officer Herron is on administrative leave, according to a spokesperson with the Athens-Clarke County Police Department.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is investigating the incident.
