DURHAM- A five-hour standoff in southeast Durham on Sunday ended with a man dead, the victim of what appeared to police to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police answered a call to the 3400 block of Long Ridge Road about 4 p.m. on a report that a man had barricaded himself inside his residence and was threatening to harm himself. The man didn't threaten to harm anyone else, according Durham Police spokeswoman Kammie Michael.
