Fatal shooting at Memphis daycare

Posted: Updated:
Police say a man who shot and killed his estranged wife outside a Memphis daycare early Tuesday morning, later turned the gun on himself.  

Police found the woman dead outside the University of Scholars Learning Center, where she worked.  

They say the man then alerted the news media before barricading himself in a nearby home.  

Both investigators and the suspect's pastor tried getting him to surrender, but he eventually came outside and shot himself on the front porch.  

Friends and family of the couple say they'd been having problems in their relationship.  

Toney Armstrong, Memphis Police Department, "We ask that you continue to keep this family in your prayers, we understand that there are two small children left behind. On this day they lost both parents, a mom and a father. They're going to need the entire community's support to pull through this."
