PAYSON -- A SWAT standoff in Payson ended when a man barricaded in his home fatally shot himself.
It started Sunday evening when police received reports of a domestic dispute at a home near 700 South and 800 West. A man had barricaded himself inside. His wife and children had made it outside safely.
Authorities blocked off streets and tried for hours to contact the man but got no response.
Just before midnight they heard a shot fired inside the home and later found the man dead apparently from a self-inflicted gunshot.
