EUSTIS, Fla. — A 27-year-old ex-convict, after vowing not to return to prison, shot himself in the head atop a Eustis apartment building after a standoff with law enforcement that shut down all four lanes Bay Street in the downtown area for about five hours Monday afternoon.

Chaston Todd Liming appeared to have shot himself in the head with a handgun at about 3:15 p.m. at 1005 S. Bay St. The Lake County Sheriff's Office would not officially confirm the extent of the man's injuries, but some officers at the scene said Liming appeared to be mortally wounded with a gunshot wound to his right temple.
