Gunman Shot, Killed in Standoff at Longwood, FL, Self-Storage Facility


A standoff at the SureSave USA self-storage facility in Longwood, Fla., ended late Monday morning when SWAT officers were forced to shoot and kill a man who was armed with a shotgun. Michael Morgan got into a fight with his wife earlier in the morning, and then took a shotgun to the storage facility, according to Longwood Police, who described Morgan's behavior as suicidal in nature.

Police told employees of the storage facility on 1170 W. State Road 434 to stay inside, away from Morgan, during the standoff. The facility was shut down during the event, as was a portion of the road.

Police said Morgan fired several shots at them, and they fired back. Morgan was hit in the shoulder. He was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 11:45 a.m., deputies said.
