CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) -- A man who traded gunfire with Charlotte police and then barricaded himself in his home is dead.
Multiple media organizations reported a police SWAT team stormed the house in south Charlotte early Friday and found the dead man, who had a gunshot wound to the abdomen.
Police say he was 48-year-old David Martin Sebaste. An autopsy will determine the cause of death.
An officer arrived at the man's home late Thursday after neighbors complained he was cursing and honking his car horn outside his house. Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say the man fired at the officer, who was not hit and fired several shots in return.
The man went into his house and barricaded himself inside until police stormed in about two hours later.
