A 36-year-old Bowie man is believed to have taken his own life during a 10-hour stand off with law enforcement early Sunday morning.
Bowie Police, Montague County Sheriff’s staff, a Department of Public Safety Trooper and the Wise County tactical unit worked throughout the night to reach a safe outcome, but it was not to be as Ryan Clay was found deceased in a house located at 610 Pillar. Police Chief Guy Green said Clay’s body has been sent to Southwest Institute of Forensic Science in Dallas for autopsy.
Captain Kent Stagg said the first call came in at 11:30 p.m. on Saturday night from Clay’s mother, Cynthia Bolt, who told police he was “shooting up the house.”
