ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOX) — A man is dead after a five-hour standoff with police, and authorities say he killed himself.
A woman in south St. Louis County called police about 7:30 Monday morning to say her estranged husband was at the home despite a restraining order against him. When the man realized police were called, he barricaded himself in the garage.
Police believed the man had a gun. The St. Louis County police tactical operations unit tried to contact the man, but heard a gunshot around 1 p.m.
Police say they had been called to the home five times since Aug. 17 for domestic assaults and disturbances.
