Posted: Updated:
One man is dead after a an hour long stand-off with Wahpeton police today. 

Officers say the apartment manager at 802 16th Ave. south called for a welfare-check on the man after being contacted by the man's son. The man apparently hasn't had any contact with his child or mother of the child since April. When police arrived, they found the man locked in his apartment, that's when police called for reinforcement.

Police say they found the man with what they believe to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

A total of six law enforcement agencies responded, including Southern Valley Special Response Team.
