(RNN) - A gunman, who fired on police and held law enforcement in an hours-long standoff, was found dead in a gas-soaked Panama City, FL, apartment on Tuesday afternoon.
The Bay County Sheriff's Office identified him as 49-year-old Kevin Robert Holroyd. He was wanted in the death of a man in a neighboring county.
Officers came under fire when they responded to a 911 call reporting the smell of gasoline at the Briarwood Apartments. Holroyd opened fire on them from a second-floor apartment, authorities said.
The officers were pinned down behind their vehicle until they could be rescued.
A woman who exited an apartment at the complex during the volley of gunfire was injured after being "grazed by a bullet."
"I heard 20 or 30 shots then there was a pause, and then 15 minutes later there was another 20 or 30 shots and then it seemed like about 100 rounds going off," witness Cody Clemmons told the Panama City News Herald. "That was high-powered rifle power. That was no small arms fire. One of them sounded like a full-blown cannon going off."
Authorities said the apartment where Holroyd was found had been doused in gasoline. They discovered his body after sending a robot to look inside.
Panama City is a city on St. Andrews Bay in northwest Florida. It has a population of 36,000 according to a 2010 census.
