The Nebraska State Patrol says a 14-hour standoff with a gunman at a pharmacy in Alliance has ended and that the suspect is dead.

Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins released a statement early Wednesday identifying the dead suspect as 27-year-old Andres Gonzales, of Alliance.

The statement does not say how Gonzales died but says the death
was confirmed following a gunbattle inside the pharmacy with Nebraska State Patrol SWAT team members. None of the SWAT officers was injured.

Police earlier said the gunman shot and wounded two city police
officers and a state patrol officer. None of their injuries is life-threatening.

A hostage held by the gunman for hours Tuesday in the drugstore
managed to escape but was wounded while getting away, police said.
