Spring Hill standoff ends with apparent suicide

- A standoff with an armed person at a Hernando County apartment complex has ended with that person dead.

Few details about the subject are available, but deputies earlier confirmed that one individual was barricaded inside an apartment on Cape Cod Loop in the Nantucket Cover Apartments in Spring Hill.  Deputies believed the subject was armed, so they evacuated nearby units.

The SWAT team and negotiators joined deputies at the scene.

Around 3:30, deputies said they had been unable to establish dialog with the subject in the apartment.  When the SWAT team went in, they found the person dead of what appeared to be "self-inflicted injuries."
