KEENESBURG, Colo. (AP) - A father and son are dead in a suspected murder-suicide after a standoff with deputies in Weld County.

Sheriff John B. Cooke says the standoff started Monday night after SWAT officers went to a house to serve a warrant for 42-year-old Shawn David Kilker. He barricaded himself inside the home with his 14-year-old son, Keith. The boy told negotiators that he was there voluntarily and refused to leave.

At around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, deputies stopped hearing from the two. A camera was deployed inside and found two bodies on the floor.
