An Ohio man whose family was once featured on the TV show “Wife Swap” is suspected of killing his mother and younger brother, as details emerged Tuesday that he used a shotgun on his family members before turning the gun on himself.

Police found 25-year-old suspect Jacob Stockdale with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head and Kathryn Stockdale, 54, and James Stockdale, 21, dead inside the family’s Beach City residence last week.

Jacob, who critically wounded himself, allegedly fired twice at his mother with a 20-gauge shotgun and left her body in an upstairs bathroom in the home before shooting his younger brother in the head near the front door, TMZ reported.

Law enforcement sources told the celebrity gossip website that Jacob tried communicating with responding officers, but they couldn’t understand him.

The suspect was hospitalized in critical condition.

Jacob and James, along with their father Timothy Stockdale, were members of the Stockdale Family bluegrass band.

The conservative Christian family was featured on ABC’s reality show “Wife Swap” in 2008.
