TOWNSEND - One person is dead following a stand-off with police in Townsend.
Initial reports indicate that law enforcement responded to a reported assault at a residence early Thursday.
When they arrived, a shot was fired from inside the residence, resulting in a stand-off lasting several hours.
Shortly after 8:30 a.m., we were told by Broadwater County Undersherriff Wynn Meehan that the suspect is dead.
Meehan says that officers did not fire their weapons, and the death is likely self-inflicted.
We will update you as we learn more.
