Barn Fire Victim Identified

Bath N.Y.-We now know the name of a Steuben County man who died last week after a standoff with Steuben County Sheriff's deputies in the Town of Bath.

The Monroe County Medical Examiner's office says he is 46 year old Timothy Preston and they say he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The 46 year old was identified through dental records. The incident started shortly before 9 last Monday night when deputies were called for a reported domestic dispute.

Preston's wife had left the scene before deputies arrived. They found Preston standing in the driveway with a shotgun before he retreated to a barn on the property. The barn later erupted in flames. Preston's body was found once the fire was put out.

The investigation continues.
