Gunman shoots himself dead in Sydney
March 7, Sydney: Sydney authorities have said a gunman who engaged police in an hours-long standoff at a factory has shot himself dead.
Authorities have named the gunman as Wayne Williams.
His death came shortly after three people were seen leaving the building and entering a police vehicle. It has not been confirmed they were hostages.
The gunman had opened fire at the industrial unit on Monday morning, killing a man and injuring two others, reports said.
Police quickly surrounded the factory, located in the industrial suburb of Ingleburn in the city's southwest.
His motives and relationship to those in the factory remain unclear, but the Sydney Morning Herald said Williams was a member of a motorcycle gang and that the man who was shot dead was connected to another motorcycle club, according to reports.
