AMBOY, MINN. -- Jeffrey Skjervold, who apparently killed himself during the weekend siege at his home, was a gun collector, a friend said. 
An arsenal of "approximately 30 firearms" was taken by investigators from a house near Amboy, Minn., where two officers were shot over the Christmas weekend, allegedly by a man who apparently shot himself to death at the end of a 7 1/2-hour standoff with police, authorities said Tuesday.

State Patrol Lt. Mark Peterson declined to describe the weapons seized after police tear-gassed the home of Jeffrey Skjervold, 41, ending the siege by about 50 officers in riot gear after a report of a domestic disturbance there.

"It's all part of an active investigation" by the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, Peterson said. "We'll be there for quite a while yet."
