SWAT team members found a barricaded man dead inside his Sarasota home Tuesday after spending more than six hours trying to take him into custody.
 
The suspect refused to leave when deputies arrived about 11:30 a.m. to serve outstanding arrest warrants on him in the 4900 block of Silk Oak Drive in Sarasota.
 
After deputies arrived, a woman came out and told them he was armed and had said he “was not going back to jail," according to the Sheriff's Office.
 
The name of the suspect has not been released.
