Police ID man who shot himself in SWAT standoff

LILBURN - Police have identified a man who killed himself Sunday after a 13-hour SWAT standoff as Cody Lee Wilson, 21, of Lilburn.

An autopsy Tuesday confirmed Wilson died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, said Gwinnett police spokesman Cpl. David Schiralli.

The incident began when officers responded to a domestic dispute at a home on Burnside Lane about 1 p.m. Sunday.

A woman reportedly told officers she was physically assaulted by Wilson, her boyfriend, who had locked himself in the basement, armed with a handgun.

Officers contacted the man by telephone, but he refused to cooperate. The Gwinnett County Police SWAT team was activated around 2 p.m. Communications with Wilson ceased that evening, police said.

SWAT officers entered the house about 2 a.m. Monday and found Wilson's body.
