HOUSTON (AP) - A man killed himself early this morning following a 12-hour standoff with Houston police.
Police say the man lobbed Molotov cocktails and then shot himself as officers closed in.
James Hahn was a chemist. He told police he would not be taken alive.
The standoff began shortly after 1 p.m. Wednesday when Hahn pulled a gun on constable deputies attempting to serve him with a warrant for eviction.
It appeared Hahn had prepared for a standoff, nailing plywood over windows and doors and stuffing insulation into cracks. Police say they found weapons, explosives, a gas mask and a chemical suit inside his home.
Police say Hahn was recently divorced and struggling with financial problems and drug addiction.
