Police Standoff in Old Town Monrovia Ends With Man's Suicide
A police standoff in Old Town Monrovia ended this afternoon when a man shot and killed himself.
The man had pulled a gun on a woman that he was arguing with in a busy commercial area of Monrovia, according to Monrovia Patch. Police responded and told him to drop the gun. Instead, the man pushed the woman out of the way and turned the gun on himself.
No one else was hurt and the woman wasn't arrested. This all happened shortly after noon on Myrtle Avenue.
Police are saying it was a domestic dispute (that happened to spill out into public view), but they haven't said what the argument was about. The name of the man has not been released.
