Police standoff ends with suicide


Early Monday morning, Amarillo police officers were called to the 4400 block of Tiffani on a welfare check of a possibly suicidal 45 year old man.

When officers arrived, they were able to make contact with the subject who was armed with a handgun. The APD SWAT team and negotiators were called to the scene.

Negotiators talked to he man for several hours, but he refused to exit his home. No other people were in the house with him.

APD and Randall County robots were deployed to aid in negotiating and keep the subject contained.

The man stopped talking to negotiators and eventually the SWAT team entered the residence. Officers found the man deceased with a self inflicted gunshot wound to the upper body.

APD Special Crimes is investigating the incident. The man's next of kin has been notified.
