Police Stand-Off Ends

After an eleven hour standoff with the Amarillo SWAT team, a 25 year old man is dead. 

It all began Tuesday afternoon when police say they were serving a warrant to Roman Martinez.

Police tell us Martinez then fired a rifle at them and fled into the Sungate apartment complex. 
Police and SWAT teams were involved in the standoff until just before ten last night. Police found Martinez dead in an apartment from apparent gunshot wounds.

They do not know at this time if the wounds were self-inflicted or from police return-fire. "We're going to have to do a lot more ballistics testing to see who shot who and where those people were."

Police believe Martinez was involved in firing at an officer earlier this month at an Amarillo nightclub.
