A man who was convicted of stalking Sandra Bullock in 2014 died of a self-inflicted wound after barricading himself in his La Crescenta home Wednesday, officials said.
Joshua Corbett, 42, was found dead inside his home after a barricade standoff with SWAT officers who were serving a warrant.
Corbett had been convicted and sentenced of stalking Bullock after breaking into her West Los Angeles home in 2014. Officials at the time alleged he intended to sexually assault her, and they said they found two dozen illegal firearms and ammunition in his home.
On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Police Department’s fugitive warrant team served a warrant at his home. That’s when the suspect barricaded himself inside the residence. SWAT officers arrived on the scene after the suspect threatened violence, officials said.
During the barricade situation, the suspect killed himself, police said. They did not say how but said no gunshots were fired during the incident.
