Death by Foreclosure | Man Triggers Six-Hour SWAT Standoff That Ended When He Took His Own Life
TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) – A man facing foreclosure triggered a six-hour SWAT standoff in a northwest Tucson neighborhood Tuesday. Police said it ended when he took his own life.
It started Tuesday morning when Pima County’s regional SWAT team and Marana Police were called to a home off of Cortaro Farms Road. Deputies were there to serve civil paperwork to Neil Francis McHugh, 65, who was being evicted for the foreclosure of his home.
“This was not a surprise visit. Mr. McHugh knew his home was being foreclosed and that the deputy was going to serve paperwork to him that morning,” Marana Police Sgt. Tim Burnenkant told KGUN9 News.
