Feb 25, 2016

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say an armed Omaha man has been hospitalized after a standoff with officers.

Police say officers were sent to the home around 6:20 p.m. Wednesday after a woman called 911 to say her husband had fired a gun in their garage and that she'd fled to safety.

Negotiators tried to contact the man by phone and loud speaker, but he didn't respond. He surrendered shortly before 10 p.m.

Police say the man didn't fire any more shots and say officers didn't fire any either. Police say he had what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The man was identified as 63-year-old Richard Marsh. Police say he'll face charges of terroristic threats and domestic assault when he leaves the hospital. It's unclear whether he has an attorney.
