Standoff Ends When Suspect Kills Self

A man is dead of a self inflicted gunshot wound after terrorizing his neighbors for several hours last night, 1200 WOAI news reports.

 

  The drama started in the 7400 block of Peaceful Meadows, which is near Tezel and Mainland on the city's northwest side.

 

  Relatives of a 32 year old man said he was 'behaving erratically' because he felt that some of his guns had been stolen.

 

  When police arrived, everybody else in the house got out and the man locked himself in a room and fired several shots.

 

  Nearby homes were evacuated as the man continued firing pot shots out of the home.

 

 After about four hours of this, the firing stopped, and police said they were not successful in making contact with the man.

 

  Heavily armored SWAT units moved in and found the man dead of a gunshot wound.

 

  Nobody else was injured, and Peaceful Meadows was soon peaceful again.
