The man suspected of shooting his wife and son at their Newaygo County home was found dead inside the house.

Police responded to the double shooting at a home on 17 Mile in Lilley Township just before 2 this afternoon.

They found Marsha and Charles Hoover Jr. dead of apparent gunshot wounds near the house outside.
