Raoul Moat dead say police sources after single gunshot brings end to standoff.

There was only one way in which this was going to end.

A tense, six-hour standoff between armed police and Raoul Moat, Britain's most wanted man, ended early this morning when the fugitive shot himself.

At 1.10 this morning a single gunshot was heard at the scene of the standoff and police were reported to have surrounded Moat and jumped on him. In a statement, the police said "no shots were fired by police officers" and it "appears the suspect shot himself".

He had managed to evade the police for a week after shooting his ex girlfriend, her new boyfriend and a policeman. He then issued a warning that he was going to start killing policemen.

There was no way this was going to end well.
