CAPE CORAL, Fla. - A Saturday night standoff with police came to an end when SWAT team members entered the home to find the suspect had apparently shot himself.

Cape Coral police blocked off streets surrounding the area of Southeast 7th Street near Santa Barbara and Cultural Park Boulevard around 9 Saturday evening.

Dana Coston with the Cape Coral Police Department says one person was shot and taken to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries. That person was allegedly injured by a man who barricaded himself inside the house.
