Investigators said they tried to make contact with Asbury just before 8 a.m. on Tuesday. However, when they arrived at his home, they found that he had barricaded himself inside. Investigators said they were unsuccessful in negotiating with Asbury. They even coordinated with the Asbury family and an external agency in an effort to peacefully resolve the standoff.

Just after 2 p.m., investigators said they heard gunfire inside the home. Upon entering the residence with MEDICS, they found Asbury had shot himself and a gun nearby.

In a four-minute video, Asbury said, “This is my last live… it might be the last time y’all see me alive.” He said in the video that his child was inside the home, and he was waiting for someone to come pick them up. While waiting, Asbury talked about the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police surrounding his home.

Investigators said the standoff lasted for 6 hours.
