Four children are safe after an Amber Alert was issued out of Denver Wednesday morning and their alleged kidnapper shot himself before the Colorado State Patrol could apprehend him.

The Amber Alert went into effect at 4:30 a.m. after a welfare check at a residence in Greenwood Village, north of Centennial, where Denver police found a dead woman Tuesday night.

The alert was issued for 15-year-old boy Deaundre McWilliams, 5-year-old boy Jordan Gunn, 1-year-old girl Dionna Moore, and a 6- to 9-month-old child whose name has not been released.

Denver police were on the lookout for a white 2000 Chrysler Cirrus, headed southbound. The CSP caught up with the vehicle south of Franktown around 6:30 a.m., where the driver apparently shot himself.

Denver police corrected the alert around 7 a.m., stating only three children were considered missing. It is unclear which of the four children was not considered in the alert.

Denver police said two of the children were found in Aurora, but there were no details no details concerning the other two.

Police did not provide details on how the victim, the alleged kidnapper and the children are related.
