Police identify man who killed himself after standoff in Hollywood

Hollywood police released the name of a man who detectives said took his own life after a standoff over the weekend that began when a woman showed up at police headquarters to report she had been battered.

Police say Damian Osorio Castellano barricaded himself inside a home at 7181 Taft St. just before 9 a.m. Sunday with a child.

Negotiators got Castellano to release the child, but he stayed inside. After several attempts to get him to surrender, police entered only to find Castellano had fatally shot himself, police said.

Neighbors said Sunday that the woman was his wife and he was the father of the children.
