L.A. Man Police Say Shot at Officers Found Dead After SWAT Standoff

March 24, 2014  | 

A man suspected of shooting at two Los Angeles police officers, injuring one, before barricading himself inside a large Hollywood Hills home Monday has died, authorities said.

The man, who was not immediately identified, had been barricaded inside the home in the 8100 block of Gould Avenue since shortly after 8 a.m., when he fired his semi-automatic gun at two LAPD officers responding to a domestic-violence call, police told the Los Angeles Times.

SWAT officers entering the home about 12:30 p.m. found the man slumped over, dead, police said. It was not immediately clear if he died from a wound suffered during the initial firefight or from a self-inflicted gunshot. No information was released about the man.

Meanwhile, the injured officer — who sources said was wounded when she was hit in the face and arm by wood fragments — was "doing well" at a local hospital, according to a tweet posted by LAPD Chief Charlie Beck.
