UPDATE: Suspect Tyler James Martin committed suicide at about 7:30 p.m. after he fled from Chicago Police Department officers who were standing by in the Logan Square neighborhood. Two officers spotted Martin’s car at about 4:30 p.m. and attempted to pull his vehicle over. Martin fled on foot and ran into the vestibule of a building at 2321 N. Kimball Avenue in Chicago. The scene became a barricade situation, and a hostage-barricade-terrorist incident unit was called. The unit attempted to communicate with Tyler James Martin, but he never answered and eventually shot himself in the head.

Tyler James Martin, 36, is accused of shooting Amber K. Cremeens, 34, (his ex-fiance) after trying to run her car off the road in Wheat Ridge, Colorado at 9:56 p.m. Tuesday night (February 17, 2009). Police are looking for Martin in connection with her murder at 35th Avenue & Wadsworth Boulevard in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. Martin ran her off the road into a chain-link fence and shot her to death. A witness saw a man exit a dark sedan and fire multiple shots at close range into the Dodge Caliber. Martin then returned to his house to get his dog (a half-blind Jack Russell Terrier) and cat and fled. The Jack Russell Terrier is named Dewey and has a “weak, scratchy bark.” Wheat Ridge police missed preventing the shooting death by seconds after responding to a frantic 9-1-1 call from Amber Cremeen’s current boyfriend that described her ex-boyfriend was trying to run her off the road.

Martin faces First Degree Murder charges. Wheat Ridge and Denver Police executed a search warrant at Martin’s address at 1355 Osceola, in Denver, Colorado. Evidence recovered in the search warrant revealed Martin had knowledge of Cremeen’s daily routine. No prior reports of Domestic Violence or Stalking involving Martin and Cremeens were on record. The couple had a relationship for approximately eight years. Martin’s last known address prior to Denver was in Kansas City, Missouri. Martin also has previously known addresses in McHenry, Illinois and Wonder Lake, Illinois.

Ceremeen’s body was found in the driver’s seat of a Dodge Caliber. Martin left the Chicago area to move to Colorado to be with Amber Cremeens. He was apparently angered because Cremeens broke off the relationship in mid-2008. Cremeens played basketball and softball in at McHenry High School East Campus and was an All-Conference softball and baseball player at McHenry High School East Campus, where she was a student from 1989 to 1992.
