An 11-hour standoff on the north side of Flint, Mich., ended when officers used construction equipment to remove the roof of a dwelling on Sherman Avenue, finding one person dead Wednesday.

Flint police found a body in the upstairs of a house, where it was believed a fugitive, Daron Raymond Gaylor Jr., 22, was armed during the confrontation. Officers could not confirm the cause of death, MLive reports.

The standoff began at 10:30 a.m. near the corner of Sherman and Fulton Street, Around 5 p.m. Michigan state troopers entered the home, and said Gaylor opened fire on them, Cole said. One trooper was hit, but suffered non-life threatening injuries. By the final update, police said the officer was doing well.

Arrest warrants were issued for Gaylor listing charges of first-degree murder, assault with intent to murder and three other gun charges after police claim his involvement in a July 2 double shooting that killed 28-year-old Ali McZick and critically injured 19-year-old Tyrell Gaylor near Martin Luther King Avenue and Welch Boulevard.
