Authorities ended the standoff by entering a home in Villa Park earlier Friday night. Police found the body of a suspected bank robber inside. A member of the FBI says the man died from a self-inflicted gun shot wound. The stand-off began Thursday afternoon after the suspect allegedly robbed a bank in La Grange. As he fled the bank, the suspect fired shots at pursuing police officers before eventually making his way to the house.
