LOWER POTTSGROVE — A 5½-hour standoff involving a man reportedly AWOL from the Pennsylvania National Guard ended with the discovery of his lifeless body in a second-floor bedroom early Wednesday night.

Lower Pottsgrove Police Chief Michael Foltz said the Montgomery County Detectives were not called to the scene because authorities do not believe the incident is a homicide. Township police would be conducting a thorough investigation throughout the evening hours Wednesday, Foltz said.

A van from the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office arrived at the scene shortly before Foltz addressed the media for the last time and confirmed the subject of the standoff was found dead.

Police did not release the name of the deceased pending notification of next of kin.
