LONGVIEW, WA (KPTV) -

The Cowlitz County Sheriff's Office said a woman is in the hospital and her estranged husband is dead after a shooting at a home near Longview.

Deputies said a 10-year-old called 911 just after midnight Wednesday, saying his dad had just shot his mom.

Deputies and the SWAT team responded the home on Niemi Road, where they found Chante Milian, 27 with a gunshot wound in her back. They got her and several children out of the house, and took Milian to the hospital.

Deputies then used a robot to search the rest of the house and found Chante Milian's estranged husband, Miguel Milian, dead in an upstairs room.

Deputies said a small caliber handgun was found near his body.

An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday to determine his cause and manner of death.

Chante Milian's condition was not available Wednesday evening.

None of the children in the home were hurt. Deputies didn't say how many children were there, but did say they're staying with family for the time being.
