LA PUENTE, Calif. (AP) - Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials say a 61-year-old man suspected of domestic violence was found dead after barricading himself in a home for nearly 12 hours.

Deputy Juanita Navarro-Suarez says the body of Chien Yu was discovered Sunday in La Puente with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Yu’s wife reported earlier to deputies that she was assaulted by her husband. She said Yu was armed with a rifle and had threatened to kill her and himself.

Deputies evacuated several nearby homes after spotting Yu pacing near a garage armed with a gun.

Yu then barricaded himself in the home and ignored repeated attempts by a crisis negotiation team to get him to surrender.

Yu’s wife was treated for minor injuries.
