A Danbury police sergeant killed himself following a barricade situation at a Southbury hotel on Sunday.
Danbury police confirmed to Eyewitness News on Monday morning that the man who died was 38-year-old Sgt. Drew Carlson, one of their own.
Just before 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, state police said they responded to the Wyndham Hotel on Strongtown Road for the report of a guest of the hotel who threatened to harm himself.
Troopers attempted to negotiate with Carlson.
However, around 7:30 p.m., troopers said Carlson was pronounced dead at the scene from a self-inflicted injury.
Police said there was no threat to the public.
As a precautionary measure at the time, guests were escorted to their cars.
