Police say suspect is dead after standoff

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A suspect has died in a standoff with police at a house on the south side of St. Louis.
St. Louis police confirmed in a statement that a "male suspect is deceased." The statement did not explain how the man was killed.
A spokesman for the US Marshals Service, Jeff Carter, says two deputy U.S. marshals and one task force officer were shot and wounded in a gunfight at the property earlier Tuesday.
A hospital spokeswoman says one marshal is in critical condition and the other is in fair condition.
