Police are negotiating with an armed, suicidal man who has been barricaded in his estranged wife’s house in Pittsburg since early this morning, Pittsburg police Lt. Brian Addington said. Police were called to a home in the 900 block of Rosewood Court at about 4 a.m. after a woman reported that her 41-year-old estranged husband was inside the house with a gun.The woman was able to escape the home unharmed and nobody else is believed to be inside. Addington said there is no indication that the man had threatened to harm his estranged wife.Crisis negotiators have been trying to convince the man to come out of the house, but as of about 10:30 a.m. he was still refusing to do so, Addington said.
