FARGO, N.D. -

Fargo Police have released the name of the man who died in the standoff at Southeast Human Service Center in south Fargo.

Forty-nine–year–old Jon Casper died from a self–inflicted gunshot wound.

Police say Casper went to Southeast around 4:00 pm with a gun and went into an office where a female employee was.

When she failed to come home, her husband tried reaching her through text messages.

She told him what was happening and he called police.

Police arrived just before 7:00 pm and were able to get the woman out of the office.

Two hours later, Casper stopped talking with negotiators and took his own life.

Fargo Police Chief Dave Todd says the situation is heartbreaking for everyone involved.

"I'll say that the loss of life in this situation is unfortunate and sad and we send our condolences out to Jon Caspar's family. I also want to acknowledge the courage and the bravery of the officers that responded to this incident," says Fargo Police Chief David Todd.

Police say Casper did not point his gun at any officers or at the woman he was with.

Southeast opened at 1:00 pm to continue to serve its clients throughout the area.
