New details surface about a fight between a mother and her estranged husband that escalated into a deadly shootout and fire in Hampton.

Police went to the home on Ravenscroft for a domestic dispute and they found Williams on the road, suffering from multiple injuries.

Police say her husband, Travis Williams, was on the roof with a gun.

Police say Williams fired first, neighbors then heard around eight shots which killed Travis Williams.

When they shot him, he laid down on the roof and he went down immediately.

The house was on fire with huge flames shooting up through the roof.

Once the fire was put out, two more people were found dead inside.

One was a 76-year-old woman, the other Carla Williams' 14-month-old daughter.

Travis Williams, who police shot, was the child's father.

Travis and Carla were married in 2002.

Three years ago, court papers show Carla filed a protective order against her husband; it was withdrawn weeks later.

The two bought a home in Hampton and started a family.

But in January, their relationship turned violent.

Carla again sought protection from her husband telling police Travis had assaulted her; he yanked her out of the shower and dragged her across the floor.

The protective order was approved by a judge, and Travis was forbidden from going to the home or making any contact with his wife or daughter for two years.
