Here's what happened during the 30-hour police standoff with a gunman in St. Clair Shores

Police are providing a much clearer picture Monday of what happened during a 30-hour standoff with a gunman in St. Clair Shores.

The gunman, Tom Ihlendfeldt, 58, and a woman, Carol Baur, 60, were found dead inside the home, according to authorities.

Police said Ihlendfeldt got angry that his neighbors were shooting off fireworks around 10 p.m. Thursday for the Fourth of July. That's when everything spun out of control, officials said.
