ORO VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) - Pima County authorities say a lengthy standoff at an Oro Valley home ended with a home invasion suspect fatally shooting himself.

The Sheriff’s Department identified the suspect as 36-year-old Steven Wahl. They say he was found dead in the home at about noon Wednesday.

The incident began late Tuesday night when deputies made a traffic stop on a vehicle and both the driver and a passenger fled on foot.

Oro Valley police then responded to a nearby home invasion in which the suspect shot at officers as they went into the backyard.

Officers and deputies got residents of the home out at various points during the home invasion and standoff.

The female passenger who fled after the traffic stop was arrested nearby soon after the traffic stop.
