HANAMAULU, Kauai (AP) - A nearly four-hour police standoff ended on Kauai with officers finding the body of a 50-year-old man. Authorities say the man called 911 late Wednesday morning to tell police he had a gun and didn't want anyone near his home in Hanamaulu.

Responding officers secured the scene as a crisis negotiator and a SWAT team were called in. The man's body was found shortly before 3:00 PM when officers entered the home.
