(Geronimo) -- The Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office says the suspect in a murder and abduction case is now dead after shooting himself on Sunday.
The search for a man who is accused of shooting and killing his estranged wife and then fleeing with their 18 month old child from their San Antonio home ended Sunday morning along a road just north of Geronimo here in Guadalupe County.
San Antonio Police officials say that search ended after Richard Concepcion shot himself while his child sat in the back seat of his pickup truck. Concepcion, 37, who had remained in grave condition throughout most of the day reportedly died yesterday evening.
The baby was found safe by police --still in the backseat of the vehicle.
According to SA Police, they had received a call to assist a custody exchange between Concepcion and the boy's mother at around 8 o clock in the morning.
A few minutes later, officials say dispatchers took a second call that shots had been fired at the home. When officers arrived, they found the woman dead on the doorstep.
There reportedly had been a short history of domestic violence between the couple. Concepcion also reportedly had just filed for divorce in October.
