Police found the bodies Friday of two elderly people inside a house where a gunman had barricaded himself and fired at three officers.

Montclair Police Capt. Chris Weiske said Adrian Marvin Bonadie, 33, whose parents owned the house, surrendered after a six-hour standoff. Weiske said Bonadie would be charged with two counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder of a police officer. Two of the officers suffered minor wounds.

"He was displaying symptoms of mental illness," Weiske said of Bonadie. "He was paranoid and thought his parents were poisoning him."

Weiske said the bodies had not been formally identified, but police assumed they were those of Bonadie's parents.

Police went to the house after another son and a daughter of the couple called to say they were worried about their parents.
