Frustrated landlord threatens to kill himself

The barrel of his rifle under his chin, William Francisco, 61, rests against his truck during a three-hour standoff with Hernando County authorities Friday morning in Brooksville. Francisco threatened to kill himself after he tried to evict two tenants who he said had missed two $300 monthly rent payments. His rifle is attached to a rope tied around his neck. Another rope connected his foot to the trigger. Francisco was persuaded to give up the weapon and was hospitalized at Greenbrier Hospital.
