St. Pete Police Standoff Ends In Death



(UPDATE)   3 p.m.        The bodies of 34 year old Christal Anderson and 37 year old Michael Brown were found inside the house.

It appears Brown shot Anderson days ago and stuffed her body in a closet. Brown then got under a bed and shot himself to death.

Police went to the house after Anderson’s ankle monitor stopped transmitting when she was away from her work release center.


A 10 hour standoff between St. Petersburg police and a man and woman inside a 21st Street N home is over.

Police rushed into the house to find the pair dead—apparently of a murder-suicide.

Officers originally went to the house on word that a jail escapee was there.

There is no word on the relationship between the man and woman.
