WHP-TV reports (bit.ly/V9IEwb) that the standoff ended just after 11 p.m. Thursday when officers entered a room at a Days Inn and found the suspect, Joe Pavelic, dead.
The television station says Pavelic was wanted by federal agents for several bank robberies.
Police had been negotiating with Pavelic during the standoff, which began around 7 p.m. When he stopped responding, they fired a chemical agent, went into the room and found his body.
The Dauphin County SWAT team and the Susquehanna Township police were assisted by the FBI.
