ATLANTA — A nearly 11-hour standoff at a Douglas County house Monday ended when a man inside fatally shot himself.

It began about 5:30 a.m. at David Spence's girlfriend's home south of Douglasville. The U.S. Marshal Service had gone there to serve a Paulding County warrant for aggravated stalking, according to Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller.
