Standoff in Havre

Posted: Updated:

Law enforcement in the midst of a standoff with an armed individual who has barricaded himself at the US Bank in Havre.

Police and witnesses spotted the suspect outside a bar Sunday night, shortly after 11. Since then, authorities have tried to convince the man, whose identity remains unknown, to put down his weapon. One witness told ABC FOX Montana that the man showed suicidal tendencies before barricading himself near the bank in downtown Havre.

Customers have been kept away from businesses located between 1st and 5th Avenue due to proximity with the building, where the standoff is occurring. Several nearby downtown businesses were also closed this afternoon and streets were blocked off to traffic. Police were unsure of the kind of weapon the man had and proceeded with caution. He was also given a phone according to witnesses. 

Reports say that the gunman is dead, but during several phone calls to Havre Police, they have not confirmed that to us at this time. As soon as we receive any new information, we will have it for you.
