OROVILLE (CBS13) — A murder suspect wanted out of Sacramento has died after apparently shooting themselves while authorities were serving a search warrant in Oroville on Friday morning.

The Butte County Sheriff’s Office said they were helping the Sacramento Police Department serve the search warrant at a home in the area of Via Laton.

SWAT and other law enforcement officers surrounded the home. Several schools in the area went on a precautionary shelter in place, including Helen M. Wilcox and Golden Hills elementary schools as well as Las Plumas High School.

Deputies say they eventually found the suspect dead with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Sacramento police have since revealed that the suspect was 41-year-old Robert Miller. He was wanted in connection for the Jan. 5 killing of a woman at a K Street parking garage.

No other details about Miller have been released at this point.

The schools in the area have since lifted their lockdowns.
