FBI Wanted Man in Whittier Found Dead



    Whittier neighborhood where a suspect had barricaded himself in a house before apparently taking his life.

    The FBI says a man who barricaded  himself inside a Whittier home was found dead of an apparent  self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
    Sheriff's deputies and an FBI SWAT team used a robot to enter the home at about 7:45 p.m. Thursday, hours after agents served a warrant as part of an investigation involving allegations of child pornography.

    Based on evidence found during the search, agents returned Thursday afternoon to make an arrest. Officials say it was then  that the man barricaded himself in a room in the home and agents  heard what sounded like a single gunshot.

    Agents arrested another man at the home on suspicion of making a false statement.
