CHATAIGNIER, La. — A man who shot at an Evangeline Parish deputy late Monday apparently killed himself during an overnight standoff, deputies said Tuesday.

Charles J. Armand III, 54, was found dead about 3 a.m. when a State Police SWAT team stormed his ex-wife's mobile home early Tuesday after nine hours of unsuccessful attempts to communicate with him, Sheriff's Office Lt. Dwayne Fontenot said.
