Partial excerpt from Linked Article follows:

"An 86-year-old Elkton man who was shot along with his wife Friday in a cemetery in Bear died from his injuries Saturday night.

Delaware State Police have ruled his death a homicide.

The couple was shot Friday around 10:15 a.m. at the Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery, located at 2465 Chesapeake City Rd. in Bear. Police said Sheldon Francis, 29, of Middletown, was the shooter, and that he exchanged gunfire with officers after fleeing into nearby woods.

Middletown man shot 2 at Delaware cemetery, exchanged gunfire with police then found dead

It ended at 4 p.m. when officers found Francis dead from a single gunshot wound. They said they do not know if it was a result of the exchange with officers or self-inflicted.

This information comes as the first update from state police since the shooting incident was deemed over late Friday night and troopers briefed the media on what had occured.

The state Division of Forensic Science is now responsible for performing autopsies on all those killed to determine the cause and manner of their deaths.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact Detective M. Ryde with the Delaware State Police Homicide Unit at (302) 698-8557."

Glad they figured it out. I wonder what gave it away....the bullets in his body?
