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.
