An active incident is taking place on Thayer Ave in Bismarck.

Police went to the area to execute a federal search warrant when a man barricaded himself inside. He was armed with a gun.

Police sent a SWAT team and crisis negotiators and advised people who lived in the area to stay indoors, move to an interior room and close the shades.

Eventually, they needed to use gas to try the lure the man out of the apartment. After repeated attempts to make contact with the man, the SWAT team entered the apartment and found the man dead due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The man was 32 years old and was the resident of that apartment. Nobody else was inside the apartment and nobody else was injured.
