MANSFIELD, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) - One person was found shot to death in a residential neighborhood in Mansfield Wednesday morning, Nov. 24, which led to an hours long standoff with a "barricaded person," Mansfield Police said.

When officers arrived, they found a woman apparently shot to death inside a neighbor's garage.

Patrol officers then determined someone in a nearby home may be involved.

When they approached the house, officers heard what appeared to be a gunshot coming from inside the home.

The person inside would not come out.

Officers obtained a search warrant and when they went inside they found an adult man deceased.
