NORTH OGDEN, Utah (AP) - North Ogden police say a man shot himself dead after waking up his neighbor in her apartment and then assaulting her.

Authorities say they responded to the apartment about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday after a man called to say he’d just attacked the woman.

Officers say that when they arrived and identified themselves as police, they heard a gunshot inside. A woman who opened the door told them her neighbor had just shot himself.

The 31-year-old woman told police the man woke her up, beat her and fired two rounds into the floor during the confrontation.

North Ogden police Detective Paul Rhoades tells The Salt Lake Tribune the man may have become angry when the woman tried to end their friendship.

He’s been identified as 54-year-old Todd Alan Barber.
