ST. LOUIS (AP) — A murder suspect has been found dead of a suspected self-inflicted gunshot wound after a lengthy standoff at a home in St. Louis.

Officials with the U.S. Marshals Service on Tuesday were attempting to serve a warrant when they heard gunshots from inside the house. About two hours later, a SWAT team from St. Louis police entered the home and found the man dead.

The suspect’s name has not been released. Another man who was in the home was not hurt.

Authorities say the suspect was wanted in connection with a recent killing in Webb, Mississippi.
