FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — A suspect killed himself Wednesday after an hours-long standoff with deputies in Fresno County.

Sheriff’s deputies received a call around 9:00 a.m. of a man with warrants out of Butte County for domestic violence and other related charges being in the area of Flamingo Mobile Home Park near Maple and Central avenues.

Around 10:15 a.m. the Sheriff’s office crisis negotiation team established a command post and attempted to get the man to surrender. Deputies say he did not comply.

Deputies say the SWAT team deployed tear gas into the trailer occupied by the suspect. When no response was given, deputies deployed a robotic camera and saw a person lying on the floor of the trailer motionless. When deputies entered, they say they found the suspect dead with fatal, self-inflicted wounds.

Authorities are not releasing the name of the suspect at this time.
