Police: Man fatally shoots self in standoff; officer injured

CANAL FULTON, Ohio (AP) — Police in Ohio say a man has fatally shot himself in a standoff in which an officer was injured.

A Canal Fulton police release says officers responded around 6 p.m. Saturday to an apartment after a complaint about 39-year-old Gabriel Mayberry making threatening statements to harm himself and others.

Police say officers began talking to Mayberry through a window and he made suicidal threats. Police say they were fired at through a door with a single gunshot, and a "projectile" from that gunshot struck a sergeant in the foot.

Authorities entered the apartment shortly before 9 p.m. and found Mayberry with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He died at the scene.

The sergeant was expected to fully recover.

Canal Fulton is roughly 50 miles (81 kilometers) south of Cleveland.
