A standoff in Evangeline Parish ended with one man dead from a self inflicted gunshot wound.

A little before 5:30 on Wednesday, Basile police was contacted by the family of 46 year old David Aucoin. Family members say Aucoin had been acting very irrational and had been hallucinating.

While a family member attempted to calm him down, Aucoin bolted from his porch with a loaded weapon and ran into a wooded area near his home in the 1700 block of Ford Avenue.

Police say they made further attempts to surrender his weapon and come out of the woods, however after being confronted by officers turned the weapon on himself and was fatally wounded.
