MARSHALL CO., Miss. (WMC) - A wanted suspect barricaded himself inside a home in Marshall County on Monday morning, according to law enforcement.

Marshall County Sheriff Kenny Dickerson says the man was locked inside a home in Chulahoma on Hwy 4 around 8:00 a.m.

U.S. Marshals, Mississippi Bureau of Investigation and DeSoto County Sheriff’s Department were also called to the scene.

The standoff came to an end when the man committed suicide, US Marshals say.

Nobody else was inside the home at the time of the barricade.

The man has been identified as George Robinson. He was on Mississippi’s most wanted list, accused of sexually assaulting a minor on two separate occasions.

Sheriff Dickerson says officers tried to use gas to try to get Robinson out of the home but he fired at officers, they did not return gunfire.

Once officers entered the home they found Robinson near the bathroom with a gunshot wound to the head.
