MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - An eight-hour standoff in Milwaukee Saturday ends with a 27 year old man shooting himself to death.
Police were looking for the man after a woman had called them to report an incidence of domestic violence.
The suspect had broken into a garage in a northside Milwaukee neighborhood when officers caught up with him. When one officer entered the garage, there was an exchange of gunfire, but nobody was hit. Then, the suspect refused to leave the garage.
Neighboring buildings were evacuated and the Tactical Enforcement Unit reports the man fired several shots at them during the standoff. Negotiators tried to talk to the man before he killed himself. That happened at about 9 a.m. Saturday.
