Teen gunman dead after standoff at high school

A 15-year-old gunman shot himself and died Tuesday after a five-hour standoff with police in Wisconsin.
The gunman, Samuel O. Hengel, held his social studies class at Marinette High School in northeastern Wisconsin hostage Monday.
Hengel had two handguns and ammunition and trapped 25 other students and a teacher. No one else was injured, the New York Times said.
Hengel shot himself when authorities entered the classroom after hearing three gunshots, police chief Jeff Skorik told the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
