AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A standoff that started when authorities tried to evict a man from his apartment ended when police officers found him dead inside the unit about six hours later. The standoff started around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, when an Akron municipal court worker went to the apartment to carry out the eviction. When the 62-year-old tenant said he was armed, the worker notified police, who called in a SWAT team. The man fired at least two shots during the standoff. But authorities say neither shot went outside of the apartment or hit anyone. Officers didn't fire any shots during the standoff.
