KERRVILLE, Texas — The murder suspect who was engaged in a standoff with police earlier today has died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

A press release from the Kerrville Police Department says 45-year-old Fernando Rolon Jr. was found inside the Rio 10 Theater with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.







Rolon was suspected of fatally shooting a female victim, identified as 38-year-old Melissa Villagrana, in a Walmart parking lot located at 1216 Junction Highway.

The release says Rolon was a Walmart employee and knew Melissa, who was also a Walmart employee.

Officers and investigators located Rolon’s vehicle at the Rio 10 Theater.







After attempting to negotiate with Rolon, he remained barricaded inside the theater and refused to surrender himself to law enforcement.

Members of the KPD Special Operations Unit reportedly made entry into the theater and delivered tear gas into the theater to convince Rolon to surrender.







Rolon remained concealed inside the theater.

After almost 12 hours the KPD Special Operations Unit was relieved by a Texas Department of Public Safety SWAT Team.

The SWAT Team continued a methodical search of the theater and located Rolon at approximately 2:55 p.m.

He was found concealed inside the theater suffering from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Rolon was reportedly transported via ambulance to the Peterson Regional Medical Center.

The release states he was treated in the emergency room but was later pronounced deceased by a Justice of the Peace.

An investigation is currently being handled by the Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Rangers, and the Kerrville Police Department.
