By The Associated Press

BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (AP) — Three shootings in one day killed five Hancock County residents. A man suspected in one of the shootings died when he fell from a cell phone tower as police tried to talk him down.

Names of those killed Saturday were being withheld until families could be notified.

Waveland Police tell WLOX-TV (http://bit.ly/I4Sf5E) they believe the man who fell had shot three people in a domestic dispute in Bay St. Louis. Coroner Jim Faul says two were husband and wife.

Meanwhile, deputies are investigating the shooting death of a man in front of a Waveland house.

The fifth death was a man shot in the head while in bed in Kiln. A woman living with him, 37-year-old Virginia Hill, has been charged with murder.

A dispatcher says there won’t be any updates until Monday.
