A 31-year-old man was found alive with a gunshot wound but died on Wednesday afternoon. He was identified as Kyle Cooper.

Investigators say they've determined Miller shot his 27-year-old niece and her boyfriend before dying of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police say a motive for the shootings remains unclear and the case remains under investigation.
