Man kills self after standoff
MIDDLEBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Police say a man who opened fire on officers trying to serve an arrest warrant at a Massachusetts house and engaged them in a standoff for several hours has killed himself.
A Middleborough police spokesman confirms 38-yearold John Mann’s suicide by an “apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.”
Police say they pulled back, took cover and established a perimeter around the house as Mann barricaded himself inside on Wednesday.
