LEXINGTON, Ky.- A stand-off between Lexington police and a man who had walked away from a halfway house in Covington ended when the man took his own life.
Police evacuated nearby homes and brought in a hostage negotiator. The stand-off lasted around six hours, according to police. Lieutenant Douglas Pape said Wallace shot himself around 8 p.m. Sunday evening.
Pape said he did believe anyone was in the house with Wallace at the time of the shooting. No officers were injured in the incident.
The Fayette County Coroner's office listed Covington as Wallace's place of residence.
