Man found dead with gunshot wound after standoff
Police say an armed man who held a woman and his mentally disabled daughter in a Pennsylvania apartment was found dead after a police standoff.
Officers in Lebanon said a 53-year-old man held the woman captive for about three hours before she escaped and called police.
Officers were sent at about 6:45 a.m. Saturday to the unit, where the man was said to be holding his 23-year-old daughter and refused to talk to them.
A Lebanon County emergency services unit entered at about 11:30 a.m. Saturday and got the woman to safety, then found the man dead in a rear bedroom with what police believe was a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Capt. David Gingrich said "less than a dozen" people were evacuated from surrounding properties. The man's name wasn't immediately released.
