Standoff in Walla Walla

A Walla Walla man is dead after committing suicide during a standoff Thursday afternoon.

Police responded to a domestic violence call on Maple Street and found a man who barricaded himself his home.

A standoff between the man and officers took place soon after the police arrived.

After several hours, police entered the house and found the man dead on the floor from an apparent self-inflicted gun shot wound.

Lincoln High School and Garrison Middle School were temporarily locked down during the standoff.
