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