First, a woman was shot and killed early Wednesday by the gunman in Madison Township, officials said.

The gunman was then tracked to a home in Trenton, Ohio, according to Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones, where an hours-long standoff transpired.

Officials said the gunman holed up in a home in the 400 block of Sal Boulevard, taking two women hostage.

The standoff began around 10 a.m. and came to a bloody end around noon.

"We had to evacuate people within the neighborhood, and we had to take this part of the community over," Jones said.

Jones said the gunman unleashed a flurry of bullets, firing at least 10 rounds at deputies. It is unclear if authorities returned fire.

As the standoff continued, authorities said the gunman killed one of his hostages. Jones described the victim as an "elderly woman."

As the standoff progressed, officials said the gunman eventually turned his second hostage over to police. She was uninjured.

The gunman then turned the gun on himself, firing one round into his chin, Jones said.

"He's still alive and was actually talking," Jones said. "But one of the other hostages is deceased inside the home."

He is alive and was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Investigators have not released the names of those involved.
