Police say the man entered Dick’s Sporting Goods in Fairless Hills near the Oxford Valley Mall on Saturday night and asked to see a shotgun and ammunition. Once the clerk handed those over, the man pulled out a handgun and ordered the worker to undo the shotgun’s gun lock.

Police say the man then barricaded himself inside a bathroom in the store. He didn’t take any hostages.

The store and nearby businesses were evacuated during the four-hour-long standoff.

Police say the gunman died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His name wasn’t immediately released. No one else was hurt.

Lt. Henry Ward says the man had been involved in a standoff with Middletown officers in 2002.
