Yonkers man who shot at police found dead inside his home


YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) — A man who exchanged gunfire with police officers and then barricaded himself inside his house in Yonkers was found dead several hours later, police said.

The Journal News reports that the standoff started shortly before 11 a.m. after officers arrived at the man’s home for a wellness check.

The man, who was not identified, “told the officers that he had a gun and he wanted to take them with him,” Deputy Chief Joseph Monaco said. Emergency service unit officers were called to the home and tried to talk to the man.
