A man who police say shot and wounded his wife and then barricaded himself in his Baltimore County house in Randallstown for hours was found dead inside this afternoon, a police spokesman said.

Police identified him as Terrence Joseph Wilson, 36, who lived in the 9500 block of Oak Trace Way in a subdivision off Liberty Road. His wife, who escaped the house before the standoff, was being treated at Maryland Shock Trauma Center for multiple gunshot wounds. The couple's 8-year-old boy also escaped unharmed and was being taken care of by relatives.

Police did not immediately say how the man died.

The standoff started about 9:30 a.m. when the wife called 911 to report an assault. Officers pulled up to the house, heard a commotion and said the wounded woman ran outside with the child. The man remained inside with a gun, police said.

Lt. Robert McCullough, a Baltimore County Police spokesman, said tactical officers went into the house about 1:15 p.m. and found the man dead.
