GBI identifies couple found dead after Centerville standoff

Police say it started when a man called them and said he shot his wife

CENTERVILLE, Ga. — The GBI and Centerville Police are investigating after two people were found dead following a standoff Tuesday.

According to a news release, it started just before 9 a.m. when police were called about a person being shot. 41-year-old Timothy Price told them he shot his wife and needed help.

When officers got to the scene at 100 Arbor Creek in the Old Stone Crossing subdivision, they tried to speak with someone inside the house, but did not get a response.

The Houston County Special Response Team made their way into the home after several canisters of tear gas were thrown inside. They found both Price and his 36-year-old wife, Katherine, dead from gunshot wounds.

Their bodies will be taken to the GBI Crime Lab for an autopsy.
