Police say the suspect in a double homicide suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound and later died.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office said three people are dead, including the suspect, following a double homicide in unincorporated Washington County Wednesday night.

A news release from the WCSO said deputies responded to a double homicide in the 23000 block of Southwest Scholls Ferry Road just after 8 p.m. on Nov. 16.

When police arrived, they found two people dead outside the home and one person with life-threatening injuries from "an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound."

Police identified the suspect as Carlos Jimenez-Vargas, 46, who later died at a hospital. Detectives said that Jimenez-Vargas shot two people during an argument before killing himself.

The agency says that the investigation is ongoing.
