Gwinnett deputies shot and killed a 27-year-old armed man Tuesday after a three-hour standoff at his home in a quiet subdivision a few miles south of Snellville.

SWAT officers were trying to arrest the man on a DeKalb County murder warrant accusing him of the death of his best friend, who was shot Saturday, police said.
