A man stalking Sandra Bullock reportedly took his own life on Wednesday after a tense stand-off with police.
Joshua Corbett had a history of stalking the actress. On May 2, he apparently killed himself after barricading himself inside his Los Angeles home, according to a report by TMZ. The police were at Corbett's home to arrest him for violating his probation, but instead found him inside with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that they found Corbett inside of his home with an injury, though they would not say whether that was how he died. The outlet reports that Corbett threatened officers when they arrived at his house, prompting a S.W.A.T. team to be called to the scene. Hostage negotiators spend about five hours trying to reason with the 42-year-old.
Corbett was on probation for charges of felony stalking and burglary, after he broke into Sandra Bullock's home in 2014. He agreed to a plea deal where he would be monitored by a probation officer and mental health professionals for five years.
Last June, Corbett was released from a mental health facility. However, he was ordered to continue outpatient treatment as a term of his sentence.
