A man's five-and-a-half hour standoff with Chandler police in which he fired shots at SWAT officers and a robot ended late Tuesday when he killed himself, police said. The man's name wasn’t released.
The standoff began about 3 p.m. at a house near West Alamo Drive and North Hartford Street when the man's mother called police because he pointed a gun at her, then at himself, said police spokesman detective Frank Mendoza.
During the next several hours, police tried to negotiate with the man, Mendoza said. The police used "a lot of restraint" and never shot at him, Mendoza said.
