The chief of police (I think it was) said something like the man tried to ambush the officers and engage them in a gun fight. And "he succeeded -- and he lost."

The guy pointed a gun around, fired into the ceiling, and then waited for police to arrive. I would be very curious to know if he ever fired after firing into the ceiling. Because it sounds much more like attempted suicide by cop than "ambush" to me. In which case, I guess the police gave him part of what he wanted, but I suppose he did still "lose" if he was wanting to wind up dead.
