A man is dead after a standoff with police in Mexico Sunday night.

Public Safety Spokesman Steve McCausland says a man stole a pickup truck in Paris and then lead police on a chase to Mexico. He says State police tactical team members confirm the man was found dead in the pickup outside the Circle K convenience store on Main St.

McCausland says gunfire was exchanged between the man and a state trooper and a Mexico Police officer. The Attorney General’s office is investigating the incident since police were involved.

We’re told the name of the dead man will most likely be released Monday.  The section of Main St. where the standoff occurred will be closed Sunday night as the investigation is underway.

No Police officers were injured.
