Woman Found Dead In House After Shootings And Police Standoff In Dallas

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - A 26-year-old woman is dead, a man wounded and a suspect in custody after shootings and a standoff in Dallas.

The incident happened just after 9:00 p.m. Tuesday in the 6200 bock of Belgrade Avenue, near Parkdale Park, in the Buckner Terrace area.

When officers arrived at the home they were able to see two adult males -- one of them suffering from a gunshot wound -- and four children in a room. After going through a window officers were able to get both adults and the children out safely.

Negotiations then began with the male suspect over loud speaker. Eventually the 27-year-old followed verbal commands to exit the house and surrendered to authorities.

After arresting the suspect officers went inside the house and found a  woman dead from a gunshot wound.

The man who was found wounded in the home was taken to a local hospital by Dallas Fire Rescue. His condition isn't known.

Officials have not said if or how those inside the home are related, but Chief Renee Hall said the incident is being investigated as a domestic violence call.
