(Scottsbluff, NE) -- A man wanted for murder in Scottsbluff, Nebraska is dead, shot by police in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

39-year-old Davin Darayle Saunders was accused of fleeing Scottsbluff after police say he shot his sister in the foot, and then shot and killed his aunt, 63-year-old Karen Cooper, at his grandfather's house May 24th.

Cheyenne, Wyoming Police received a report that Saunders was in the city on May 25th when they were called out to Wal-Mart on a report of a disturbance with a gun. Police say they found Saunders Saturday at a home near the 2500 block of East 11th Street.
