When officers from Little Egg Harbor Township Police Department arrived on the scene, they found Hoffman dead from an apparent gunshot wound. They also found a dog, dead from gunshot wounds.

Schulz was found with a gunshot wound to the head, but was still conscious. He later died at the hospital in Atlantic City.

Billhimer says an investigation found that Schulz shot both Hoffman and the dog, before turning the gun on himself.
