An Ellicott City man who barricaded himself inside his home committed suicide, Howard County police said Monday night.

Police said the name of the man in Wheatfield Way will not be released. His family has been notified, according to police.

Wheatfied Way, which was closed between Montgomery Road and Autumn Harvest, was reopened and residents were told they could return to the homes, police said.
