Gunman kills himself during standoff where Andover home burned to the ground


SWAT personnel were called to a house fire in Andover.

A man in a standoff with law enforcement fatally shot himself Wednesday on an Andover property where a home burned to the ground, authorities said.

The property in the 300 block of Andover Boulevard also is where Anoka County sheriff's deputies were called in mid-February, when the owner allegedly fired several gunshots and threatened to shoot law enforcement.

The house fire was detected by a passerby about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, and a SWAT team joined fire personnel in responding to the scene, said Sheriff's Lt. Andy Knotz.
