Police in Reno, Nevada, said a gunman who fired shots from high-rise condos to the street below Tuesday is dead.

Deputy Chief Tom Robinson told reporters Tuesday night that the man died after a SWAT team went to the 8th floor of the Montage and engaged him. It wasn't immediately clear whether he was killed by police gunfire or his own.

Records show that Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock, who killed 58 people in October, had previously owned a unit in the high-rise Montage, but sold it in December 2016.

Robinson says the man had a hostage and was firing from a condo in the building down to the street below, but neither the hostage nor anyone else was hurt.

The luxury high-rise is surrounded by some of downtown Reno's most popular casinos, but the streets were mostly empty when the man was firing.

Authorities say gunshots were going off for at least 20 minutes.
