Deadly end to Tucson barricade situation

Posted: Updated:

A man barricaded himself inside his house. By the time police showed up, he shot himself.

It happened on the 2600 block of North Haskell. Police say they arrived at a house where there had been a domestic dispute between two men.  One of the men was outside the home, when they arrived.

"They tried to make contact with the other male who was inside the residence, he immediately barricaded himself inside, officers were able to briefly speak to him and a short time later it appear it suffered from a self inflicted gun shot wound," says Sgt. Diana Lopez.

Police don't yet know why the man shot himself. He died at the hospital. The investigation is ongoing.
