FALFURRIAS (Kiii News) -     A sad ending to a standoff in Falfurrias that lasted eight hours Friday.  It started just after 4 o'clock Friday afternoon after a coworker called police that a man at a hotel room in Falfurrias was threatening to kill himself.
    Police set up a perimeter around the hotel after they found out that the man had two guns inside the room.  DPS, Homeland Security, and other surrounding agencies were also called for backup.
    After several hours, the SWAT team went in and found the man on the floor. He was already dead. Police say it was the result of what is believed to be a self inflicted gun shot wound.
