An overnight standoff in Lake Stevens ended with the suspect dead.

KOMO-TV reports that the standoff started at around 9 p.m. Tuesday after reports of a domestic incident outside a home near Chapel Hill Road.

The Stevens Police Department says at one point, there was a woman and a seven-year-old girl inside. Officials say the woman and the girl escaped the house safely.

Some nearby homes were evacuated due to the potential danger.

After failing to make contact with a man inside the home, SWAT officers entered the house and found him dead.

The man’s death is under investigation. He was 39-years-old.
