Bank robbery suspect found dead after hourslong SWAT standoff in Austin

A man was found dead in his Austin home after a nearly 20-hour standoff with a police SWAT team Wednesday.

About 9 a.m., FBI agents were executing an arrest warrant in the 5400 block of West Walton Street on a man suspected of federal bank robbery charges when the man barricaded himself inside the home, according to Chicago Police and the FBI.

After hourslong deliberation with Crisis Negotiators, a SWAT team entered the home and found the man dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, officials said.


The Cook County medical examiner identified the man as 35-year-old Jean Carlos Mateo.

CPD is conducting a death investigation.
