CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The suspect involved in a swat situation on Cleveland's east side was found dead after a three and a half hour stand-off.

"I was shocked and appalled to see all these police out here," said Cammack Wilson. 

No other victims or hostages were found inside the suspect's apartment at the Morning Star Towers at East 106th and St. Clair Avenue in Cleveland.

This all started around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Cleveland Police Officers say the suspect fired shots at Cleveland Housing Court Bailiffs, who were serving an eviction notice.

"Once they got there some sort of an altercation ensued with someone inside the apartment.  They were planning on evicting someone and shots were fired," Cleveland Police PIO Ali Pillow said.

The bullets missed the bailiffs as they stood next to each other. The bailiff(s) returned fire. 

The tenant died from a gunshot wound but police have yet to say if it was self inflicted.

Three hours after it all started the tenants were able to go back home.

"This is the worse I have ever seen it and I have been there all my life," added Cammack Wilson. 

No name yet on the tenant who is now dead. The Medical Examiner still trying to notify his next of kin.
