CORVALLIS — A standoff with law enforcement in Corvallis has come to an end with the body of the suspect found in the residence apparently the victim of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Ravalli County Sheriff Steve Holton says in a social media post that negotiations with the 35-year-old armed man ended when they got no response from the man.
A robot was sent inside the home Wednesday night where the man was found dead.
Sheriff Holton previously said there appeared to be a "significant mental health component" to the situation.
The standoff — that started Monday when officers tried to arrest him on several outstanding warrants — ended at around 10 p.m. Wednesday.
A number of homes in the area were evacuated as a precaution.
"Despite on-going efforts to negotiate, the suspect ultimately stopped communicating with negotiators. Missoula and Flathead County Special Response Teams responded to Corvallis to assist," a news release states.
Granite County Sheriff/Coroner Scott Dunkerson and the Hamilton Police Department are investigating the circumstances of the death.
