Police found two guns in the living run, two hunting riffles in the closet, an AR-15 leaning against the home in the backyard, and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.
Police visited the scene and picked the body which was taken to the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) Mortuary.
The suspect escaped from the scene. The incident comes two days after Danville Commonwealth's Attorney Michael Newman announced no charges would be sought against officer Justin P. Nelson who exchanged gunfire with and killed Richard Towler, 54, following a 45-minute standoff early in the morning on January 7.
The night of April 5, Hollister Police officers responded to the 900 block of West Street just south of downtown, in response to a report of shots being fired into a house, according to a press release.
He has also been a suspect in other shootings, police said.
