TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man fatally shot himself after a six-hour standoff with a SWAT team.

The Tallahassee Democrat reports the man called Tallahassee police Monday evening and threated to harm himself and others. Police evacuated part of the neighborhood while a SWAT team spoke to him through a bullhorn.

Just before midnight, police set off a flash bang, a non-lethal device designed to disorient a subject. A robot was then sent into the man’s home.

More than six hours after receiving the call, police found the man dead inside the home. Police didn’t immediately identify the man.
