SAVANNAH, GA (November 10, 2013): A Savannah man has been hospitalized after shooting himself before surrendering to Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police during a standoff Saturday night.

Steven Spann, 58, was listed in critical but stable condition after being transported to Memorial University Medical Center.

Patrol Officers, SWAT team members and Crisis Intervention Team negotiators had surrounded his residence in a two-apartment house on the 700 block of East Gwinnett Street after being called by a relative who lives in the other apartment about 9 p.m. Police were advised he was in his apartment with a rifle.

Negotiators had convinced Spann to exit the house and surrender but heard a shot before he walked out and discovered he had shot himself.

SCMPD Violent Crimes detectives continue to investigate.
