Authorities have released the name of a man who shot his wife at a busy indoor play center in Michigan, then killed himself at their home.

Police say 32-year-old Cheryl Pilarowski was shot Saturday at Jump N Jam in Marysville, a business she owned, and died at a hospital. Investigators say 34-year-old Matthew Pilarowski was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound at their home in nearby St. Clair County's Kimball Township.

Marysville police Deputy Chief Ron Buckmaster tells the Times-Herald of Port Huron they'd been arguing earlier in the day in a parking lot.

He told that Cheryl Pilarowski was shot in front of their children.

Dozens of other children and adults were in the business about 50 miles (80 kilometers) northeast of Detroit at the time.
