Police remained on scene for much of the day to determine whether anyone else was inside the home.
Due to the possibility a gun may have been involved, crisis negotiators, explosives disposal unit robot, canine and tactical support units were used to clear the vacant home.
At around 4:30 p.m. CT, police cleared the scene in the Pleasant Hill neighbourhood.
Traffic restrictions have been lifted in the area.
The investigation is ongoing.
