Man in recent standoff with Brevard County SWAT found dead

Posted: Updated:

Investigators with the Titusville Police Department said that a man involved in a standoff with officers last week, has been found dead inside his home on Smith Drive.

An eviction order had been served to Glenn Hurley on Friday by the Brevard County Sheriff's Office.  In that incident, Hurley had barricaded himself within the house and refused to come out.  The SWAT team was called to support the Sheriff's Office, but the incident was resolved peacefully.

On Thursday, the owner of the home found Hurley in a bedroom, dead from an apparent self-inflicted wound.  There are no signs of foul play.

When FOX 35 spoke with Hurley last week, he said he had no intention of leaving the home or of paying back taxes.

"At this point, I'm living off what little savings I have left, and it's at the point now where I don't think I should have to give it to somebody."

Due to threats recently made by Hurley, the house was subsequently cleared by a bomb squad which removed large fireworks and weapons.  Earlier, an improvised explosive device within a bag of large fireworks was taken home by a member of a cleaning crew. That device was safely detonated by the bomb squad.
