A Monday standoff between multiple law enforcement agencies and a barricaded individual in Donna resulted in his death, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

49-year-old Cesar Armando Aguirre was identified as the man who was found deceased in the hours long standoff, according to a news release.

The standoff began Monday at around 4:49 p.m. at the 300 block of N. 11th Street when officers with the Donna Police Department responded to an intoxicated subject discharging his firearm inside the residence, DPS said in the news release.
