A standoff in Largo has ended with officers arresting an unidentified man who threatened to take his own life.
It happened in the early morning hours at the Walsingham Apartments, and for 15 minutes or so, police say the standoff was intense.
The man apparently was "highly intoxicated" and told officers he wanted them to shoot him – at times wielding a rifle and handgun.
Officers eventually fired a "less-than-lethal" shotgun round and used a Taser to bring him down. They took him into custody and then to the hospital, where they say he is expected to be OK.
