Grover shooting suspect dead after standoff


A man who authorities say shot and seriously injured his estranged wife, leading to an interagency manhunt, was found dead after an hours-long standoff.

According to Grover Beach police, William R. Forgey, 46, of Roseville, was able to evade a joint task force and return to the scene where he allegedly shot his wife.

It’s unclear how officers discovered Forgey was back at the residence on the 800 block of Mentone Avenue, but on Dec. 5, officers called upon the SLO County regional SWAT team after Forgey refused to cooperate and they learned he was still allegedly armed.

SWAT officers evacuated several neighboring residences and attempted to get the suspect to surrender. At approximately 2:30 a.m., officers determined that Forgey had died inside the residence, from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The initial search for Forgey was conducted by the Grover Beach Police Department in conjunction with the SLO County District Attorney’s Office and the U.S. Marshall’s Service, and spanned the Central Coast into Northern California.

As of press time, the scene was still under investigation by the SLO County Coroner’s Office. No residents or officers were injured in the incident.
