Authorities say Jason Brown shot and killed three men in Fresno, Livermore, and Sacramento.

A police standoff at an East Oakland motel is over. Thursday night and early Friday morning, a SWAT team tried to make contact with a man wanted for murder in three different cities, including Fresno, who they say barricaded himself inside the Motel 6 on Edes Avenue, near the Oakland Coliseum.

Early Friday morning, officers moved in. The Alameda County coroner's office later removed a body from the motel room. Authorities said they believe it was the body of Jason Brown. They said he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
