TAYLORSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Indiana State Police say a Michigan man killed himself after a nearly four-hour standoff with officers at a motel.
Police say negotiators had been talking with 44-year-old Richard Morris of Waterford, Mich., before officers heard a gunshot Monday morning from inside a motel room. The standoff was at a Red Roof Inn near Interstate 65 in the central Indiana town of Taylorsville.
State police Sgt. Noel Houze says Morris' 26-year-old stepson was wanted on an armed robbery warrant and surrendered without incident soon after officers made contact with the men about 5 a.m.
Houze says police were told the men were possibly in the area and a clerk identified one man's photo as someone who checked in Sunday night at the motel about 30 miles south of Indianapolis.
