Police reported that a woman screaming for help could not coax her boyfriend out of a Centre City apartment, and after several hours the man shot and killed himself.

The call for help from an apartment at 855 Beech St., was reported at 7:34 p.m. Saturday, said San Diego police Officer Brad Ruff.

When police arrived, they discovered that the woman and her boyfriend had been fighting inside a third-floor apartment and that the boyfriend was still inside. Officers were unable to contact the man, said Ruff.

After continued, unsuccessful attempts to reach the man over several hours, officers entered the apartment and found the man dead, Ruff said.

Officers handling the incident were not from the strategic weapons and tactical team, according to Ruff.

Police today had no additional information.
