Man dies in standoff with police in southwest Ohio
YELLOW SPRINGS (AP) — Police in Yellow Springs say officers were called to a home in the city just east of Dayton about 11 p.m. Tuesday on a reported disturbance.
The Dayton Daily News reports that the Greene County sheriff says officers were met with gunfire. A SWAT robot entered the house around 5 a.m. and found the suspect down on the floor.
The sheriff's office on Wednesday referred calls for comment to the police department. Officials say a coroner will conduct an autopsy to determine how the man died. Police say no one else was injured.
A police dispatcher says the suspect's name is being withheld until family members can be notified.
