Police say they have found a person dead inside an Alexandria home where a deputy had tried to serve an eviction notice Friday morning.

Amtrak passenger trains and local VRE commuter train service were suspended for several hours in Northern Virginia as police respond to a man barricaded inside an apartment.

A deputy sheriff went Friday morning to serve an eviction notice at an apartment in the 4800 block of Eisenhower Avenue. Police say the deputy knocked on the door, announced himself and then heard gunfire coming from inside the apartment. They say the man barricaded himself inside and officials tried to negotiate with him.

Police say they entered the home about 10 p.m. and found a person dead with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. They have not released the person's name.
