Man found dead following standoff at Comstock Township home
COMSTOCK TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A man was found dead following a stand off on Saturday in Kalamazoo County. It happened around 1:00 p.m. in the 5500 block of Sprinkle Road in Comstock Township.
Officials with the Kalamazoo Sheriff’s Office said authorities were called after a woman was assaulted and threatened by her ex-husband with a handgun. The woman escaped, but the man remained in the home.
Authorities said they acquired a search warrant to enter the home after more than three hours of trying to convince the suspect come out. A 48-year-old man from Comstock Township was found dead inside from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.
