GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A 3-1/2-hour standoff between police and an armed man in a Grand Forks apartment ended with the man apparently killing himself.

Officers including a SWAT team responded to the scene about 7:30 p.m. Monday, after a report of a suicidal man with a rifle. The apartment complex was evacuated.

Police say attempts to communicate with the man were unsuccessful, and a flash bang deployed outside of the building also generated no response.

Officers then sent a robot into the building and discovered the man dead. He was not immediately identified.
