San Francisco police found a man dead inside a Mission Dolores residence after an hours-long standoff early this morning.
A male suspect made his way into a residence on Dorland Street and attacked a female victim at about 2am, according to San Francisco police Officer Giselle Linnane.
The victim was able to flee the building and call police. A hostage negotiation team tried to make contact with the suspect after they arrived, but were unsuccessful. They believed the suspect had barricaded himself.
A police tactical unit entered the residence between 5am and 6:30am and found the male suspect dead, Linnane said. She specified that the death did not occur at the hands of police.
The investigation is currently ongoing, and Linnane said there are no updates regarding the suspect and victim's relationship, or the suspect's motives.
