Kamonae Carey of Muskogee is dead after a standoff with police at the Riverside Trailer Park on East Gibson Street yesterday, according to police.

Police arrived at his residence around 4 p.m. to serve a search warrant at the residence for child sexual assault. Officers knocked, but no one answered, so they breached the front door, where they found a woman. Once outside the home, the woman cooperated with the police and told them Carey was inside and had locked himself in a back room, where he had a .380 caliber pistol.

Police began demanding that Carey come out, but he refused. The Special Operations Team arrived around 5:20 and continued to demand Carey come out, to no avail.

The team deployed flash bangs in an attempt to get Carey out without lethal consequences, then deployed chemical munitions. Nothing worked. A member of the team saw a man slumped over a bed in the room where he was supposed to be, so police deployed a thermal imaging camera into the room, confirmed he was there and then entered the room, where they found Carey dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
