By Katie Weber | 

A Louisville man is dead after kidnapping his ex-girlfriend and her child.

Kentucky State Police received a complaint from a home in Edmonson county, where Steven Huff allegedly forced entry into the residence and took his ex-girlfriend and her nine month old daughter at gunpoint.

Huff then headed toward Hart county, where his vehicle was later sighted by the Hart County Sheriff's Department near Bonnieville.

After a chase, Huff pulled over into a driveway, and as the deputy approached the vehicle Carmella Sailings and her daughter escaped and Huff shot himself.

Sailings and her daughter were not injured.
