MIAMI (CBSMiami) — One man is dead after a Swat standoff at a southwest Miami-Dade home Monday.
CBS4’s Gary Nelson reports 45-year-old Alfredo Alvarez killed himself during the standoff which started in the early morning hours.
Police were originally called to the house for a domestic disturbance. Arriving units heard gunshots just before 6 a.m.
Two women and a boy escaped from the home located near SW 209th Street and SW 133rd Ave, according to Miami-Dade Police.
They were later identified by authorities as Alvarez’ wife, mother-in-law and 12-year-old son.
Meantime, a 12-year-old girl hid under her bed on the second floor and called police.
SWAT later rescued her by going through a second story window.
Throughout the morning, Swat teams could be seen knocking out the security cameras around the house.
Officers could also be seen around the neighborhood, some with guns drawn.
At about 11 a.m., crews discovered Alvarez had killed himself. They are not sure when he killed himself during the hours-long incident.
Police have not said if Alvarez was shooting at someone early this morning or what the dispute was about.
