Madden, 36, was taken into custody at the scene. One of the victims is Madden's estranged wife. The second victim is a friend of the wife.

The victims' identities have not been released. Madden's booking photo was not released because he was being treated at a hospital for self-inflicted injuries prior to his arrest.
