Man dead after standoff with police

Posted: Updated:

A standoff between an Illinois man and Iowa law enforcement ended Wednesday afternoon with the death of the man.

Jonathan Marion, from Galena, IL, was found inside an apartment in Pella. A woman was inside with him. Police say they identified him as a fugitive, and tried to contact Martin. All efforts were rejected. Officers were eventually able to talk to the woman inside, but Martin would not leave the building.

The woman was able to leave uninjured.

 The ISP State Tactical Unit responded to the scene and found Martin dead of what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation and  Pella Police Department Criminal Investigations are investigating.
