Los Angeles, CA: Man found shot to death 5 hours after choking call

LOS ANGELES -- Sheriff's deputies surrounding a rural Southern California home for more than five hours after a domestic violence call say the suspect committed suicide.

A woman telephoned the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department on Sunday morning and said her husband choked her. The Lost Hills station desk then heard a gunshot.

The woman was safely outside the Lake Malibou home when deputies arrived and the house was surrounded.

There was no response to telephone calls and sheriff's loudspeaker pleas.

A SWAT team entered the home shortly after 4 p.m. and found the man dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
