An Illinois double homicide suspect who shot himself during a standoff with law enforcement in Edina has died, according to an update from the Buffalo Grove Police Department. 

Buffalo Grove, a northwest suburb of Chicago, is where 64-year-lld Anatoliy Ermak is accused of fatally shooting his ex-wife and her husband in the parking garage of their condominium complex last week. 

Ermak, whose last known address was in Minnesota, was located by authorities on the 6600 block of Vernon Ave. in Edina around 8 p.m. Nov. 22. At one point during the standoff, Ermak, still in the Nissan Versa that helped authorities locate him, shot himself. 

He died at 7:02 a.m. Monday at Hennepin County Medical Center. 

Surveillance footage from the murder scene in Illinois showed the victims driving into their parking garage before they were approached by Ermak, and following a brief conversation they were both shot at close range, according to Buffalo Grove Police Department.

Police identified the Buffalo Grove victims as Nataliya Ermak, 55, and her husband, Roman Frid, 69.

WCCO reported that Ermak "once lived in Edina," but his last known Minnesota address has not been released.
