An intense home video posted on Youtube gives what's billed as an up close look at the deadly standoff in Lamont last week.

This video was posted by a Lamont resident who watched as SWAT team members engaged an armed man hiding in a trailer in a backyard.

The incident happened November 14 when Andres Aguilar, 19, ran from a deputy who tried to pull him over.  Deputies say Aguilar fired a shot at the deputy, but managed to get away.

That led to an all-night standoff, that shut down a neighborhood for about 10 hours.  It ended after deputies found Aguilar hiding in a trailer behind a home.

A second Youtube video shows the aftermath of the shootout.  In that video you can see a string of bullet holes that riddle the side of the trailer.

Aguilar died at the scene.  It's not known if he died from bullets fired by deputies or if he took his own life.
