LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Jefferson County officials have identified a man who was found dead after a fire broke out in an apartment building during a standoff with police last week.
Deputy Coroner Sam Weakley told The Courier-Journal the man was 23-year-old James "J.C." Charles Boyd Jr. Weakley says Boyd died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head during the incident last Wednesday.
The building caught fire as police were involved in a standoff after going to the location to serve several warrants on Boyd. Police said Monday the cause of the fire was still undetermined.
Police said when they arrived at the apartment building, they were confronted by gunfire.
