Former Middleton (Wis.) High School and University of Michigan volleyball standout Molly Lillard, the daughter of former University of Wisconsin and New York Jets wide receiver Al Toon, reportedly was shot to death in what police are describing as an apparent murder-suicide Sunday in Scottsdale, Arizona. 

The Arizona Republic reported that Lillard was found with gunshot wounds in front of a house around 5 p.m. local time and transported to a hospital but succumbed to her injuries. Her husband, Royce Lillard III, was suspected of the shooting and barricaded himself in his home before being found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. SWAT teams tried to establish contact with Royce Lillard before entering the home around 11 p.m.

The couple’s 8-month-old child was also inside the house and was not injured.

According to the Times-Tribune in Middleton, the couple had been married for  two years.
