Person of interest in Thomas Street death dies from self-inflicted gunshot wound

Wichita Falls Police confirmed that Damon Jason McLellan, the person of interest in the death on Thomas Street, died sometime Friday night. 

Yesterday Wichita Falls police said the man they were looking for in connection to a death on Thomas Street was taken to United Regional with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

The initial call came into police just after 5 p.m. on Friday after an off-duty officer spotted Damon Jason McLellan, 42, and his car in a park at Miller Road and Maplewood.

Earlier Friday, McLellan became a person of interest in the murder of Madonna McLellan, 69.

"One of our officers, off-duty units actually saw the subject, had known the description and knew he was a person of interest from the earlier incident and called for officers from the scene," said Sgt. John Spragins, WFPD. "Of course he waited for uniformed officers to arrive and that's when they approached him."

Spragins said Damon McLellan shot himself in the head with a handgun and taken to United Regional. His condition is unknown.

According to authorities, Madonna McLellan was found in a bedroom Wednesday morning after her husband called the police. It was initially investigated as an unattended death and later police said it would be investigated as a homicide.

Madonna McLellan did suffer a traumatic injury, police said.

An autopsy will be performed by the Dallas County medical examiner's office.
