WEST ALLIS, Wis. (AP) — Police say a man has died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound following a shootout with police in the Milwaukee suburb of West Allis.

A caller told police a man had pointed a gun at him or her, then got in a car and drove away about 10:30 p.m. Thursday. Officers found the driver and exchanged gunfire with him.

The man then fled into an apartment not far away. Police set up a perimeter around the apartment and later heard a single gunshot.

When officers entered the apartment they found the man dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. No one else was injured.
