Madison County police say a man shot himself to death Thursday night after police came to serve him an arrest warrant at an Elwood home. Police say the man barricaded himself in the house when they arrived about 9:30 p.m. A short time later, shots rang out. Special weapons teams, chemical agents, robotic cameras and police dogs were used before the man’s body was found in the crawl space about four hours later.
