Police Line Do Not Cross

DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ga. (CBS46) -- Douglasville Police are investigating a murder-suicide between a husband, his wife and in-laws Sunday.

Sunday morning, East Point resident and estranged husband, Udoamaka Nwamu, 34, assaulted his in-law’s home on Long Lake Drive in Douglasville, where his recently separated wife, Kaliyah Nwamu, 24, was staying.

Police said Udoamaka fired a handgun into both the front and back of the home. That's when the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office received 911 calls and immediately sent deputies to the location.

Prior to the deputies arriving, Udoamaka had already forced his way into the home.

Upon arrival deputies were met with gunfire from inside the home from Udoamaka.

The deputies took cover and held their position while the Sheriff’s Emergency Response Team and a trained hostage negotiator responded.

During the course of the negotiations with Udoamaka a single gunshot was heard and the S.E.R.T team immediately entered the home.

That is when they learned Udoamaka killed his wife and her mother, 46-year-old, Nikita Green. Udoamaka was found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The is an ongoing investigation.
