Driver in Oregon police standoff kills himself

BEND, Ore. — Oregon State police say a Vancouver, Washington, man shot and killed himself in his vehicle following a standoff with police on Highway 20 near Bend.
State police said the Deschutes County sheriff’s office received a call Saturday night that a man described as armed and suicidal was driving on Highway 20 in the Santiam Pass area.
State police spotted the driver, who sped away before being stopped just after 9 p.m.
Police said the man failed to follow orders. Several agencies responded, including a Bend Police Department negotiator and state police SWAT personnel.
About an hour after the man was stopped, officers were able to check on his vehicle. They found him dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The man was identified on Sunday as Farhad Masheri, 51.
