KGMI News Reporting

BELLINGHAM, Wash. – A seven hour standoff that closed Sunset Drive finally ends with a suicide.

It started at about 9:30 Tuesday morning.

The Bellingham Police SWAT team surrounded an apartment complex where a bullet went through the wall of one unit into another. No one was hit.

Police weren’t able to make contact with the person in the apartment they believe the bullet came from, leading to the standoff.

The standoff ended when a police robot confirmed the man had shot himself to death.

Police spokesman Bob VAnder Yacht explains why they had to shut down sunset.

 

Nearby Bellingham Christian School was locked down, but students were never in danger.

The man’s identity has not been released.
