The Missoula County Coroner announced Friday that the man responsible for fatally shooting two people on Wednesday night before turning the gun on himself, has died.

Public Information Officer Brenda Bassett with the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office said 36 year-old Nicholas Scolatti was pronounced dead just after 4:00 a.m. on Friday morning.

Police reports indicate that Scotalli and his wife Kalee Scolatti were involved in a dispute at her home when she apparently called a family friend, Anthony Dupras, and asked him to come over. After Dupras arrived, Scolatti produced a handgun and shot Mrs. Scolatti and Dupras several times before turning the gun on himself.

At this time, police are still attempting to determine what the dispute was about.

Kalee Scolatti was the News Director at KTMF-TV, he ABC-Fox affiliate in Missoula. She grew up in Missoula, and graduated from the University of Montana in 2005. She and Nicholas Scolatti are survived by three daughters. A candlelight vigil was held in her remembrance Thursday evening at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church not far from where the shooting occurred.

The investigation into the incident continues.
