Angry over a divorce?

Man angry over divorce barricades himself in lawyer's office
By Guillermo X. Garcia

A man police said was angry over his divorce pulled a gun and barricaded himself for several hours at a downtown lawyer's office Friday afternoon before surrendering to police.

The man entered the law office of Armando Martinez in the 300 block of South Flores shortly after 5 p.m. and threatened to shoot himself or his estranged wife, police said.

Several people fled the office after the man began negotiating with police. Witnesses said Martinez pulled out a gun and confronted the man, at which point the man aimed the gun at his own head.
