State troopers have identified the Milford man who police say shot himself after he fatally shot another man outside a home Sunday afternoon.

Troopers were called to the home Sunday afternoon after 72-year-old Clarence "Pete" Short was found shot in the yard of a home on the 5000 block of Williamsville Road.

Short was taken to Milford Memorial Hospital where police say he was later pronounced dead.

Police say 42-year-old Lorenzo Johnson, who was a suspect in Short's shooting, barricaded himself in the home and police tried to contact him to persuade him to surrender.

When police entered the home just before 7:30 p.m., police say they found Johnson dead. Police say he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
