PRESS RELEASE

A complainant reported that a friend who lived in the 300 block of Market St. was suicidal. The subject suffered from legal, health, and alcohol issues. The subject was a long time resident of the borough and was known by officers.

When officers arrived at the residence, they found the subject had a rifle and had barricaded himself inside his living room. Dauphin County CRT team was activated and assisted with the incident.

The standoff with police forced the closure of part of Market Street from the square to North St. The incident ended when the subject died from a self inflicted gun shot wound. The Dauphin County Coroner's office is doing a death investigation.

Millersburg Police were assisted by PSP Lykens, Halifax Police, Dauphin Co office of the Coroner, Dauphin Co CRT Team, Millersburg Fire Department & Millersburg Ambulance.
