Their bodies have been taken to the State Medical Examiner's office for a autopsies.Between the shooting and the time that police arrived on scene, Holland had retreated into his home, said McCausland.Police officers tried to get him to turn himself in.Several hours after arrival of the police, at about 6 a.m., Holland came out of his home.
