Authorities have identified a Kimball Township man who police said shot his wife Saturday at a busy indoor play center in St. Clair County before killing himself at their home.

Officials with the Marysville Public Safety Department said Monday the shooter was Matthew Pilarowski, 34.

At about 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Pilarowski went to his wife's business, a bounce-house play center called Jump N Jam on Gratiot near Interstate 94 and Range Road in Marysville and shot her, police said Monday. 

His wife, identified as Cheryl Myny, 32, was taken to a hospital where she died, according to officials.

Police later found Pilarowski dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound at their Kimball Township home.

"At this point in the investigation, it appears this was the result of domestic violence," officials said in a statement. 

Police continue to investigate.

On Saturday, Marysville police said Pilarwoski shot his wife in front of their children. Investigators also said the couple fought outside the business earlier Saturday.

Dozens of other children and adults were in the business at the time of the shooting but there were no reported injuries. Officials said any of the business' patrons who left personal property at the play center should call the Marysville Police at (810) 364-6300 to arrange a time to get their belongings.

Officers from several law enforcement agencies responded to the shooting scenes south and west of Port Huron.

According to its Facebook page, Jump N Jam offers inflatable bouncers, obstacle courses, an inflatable boxing ring, a full arcade, a toddler zone and private party rooms for children’s birthdays.

The shootings drew numerous officers from city, county and federal law enforcement agencies to the scenes south and west of Port Huron.
