PALMVIEW, Texas (AP) - Investigators say a gunman has been found dead in a South Texas home to end a three-hour standoff in which shots were fired at responding officers.

The Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office says no officers were hurt during Wednesday night’s domestic dispute in Palmview.

Cmdr. Joel Rivera says the suspect died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. The name of the 49-year-old man wasn’t immediately released.

Further details about the family dispute were not immediately available.

Palmview is about 5 miles west of McAllen.
