Woman In Custody Following Argument, Shooting, Standoff

DETROIT (WWJ) – A woman has been taken into custody after barricading herself inside a home in southwest Detroit following a fight and a shooting.

Police say the situation unfolded early Friday morning when the woman and her boyfriend began arguing at a home on Cahalan Street, near Central and Vernor.

The woman ran across the street to a neighbor’s home and the boyfriend followed, throwing a brick or some other object at the front door. That’s when the neighbor allegedly fired several shots, striking the man in the leg.

After the shooting, the woman ran back to her home and refused to come out for police. After several hours of negotiations, she was taken into police custody.

The man was taken to the hospital. His current condition is unknown.

Investigators say police have dealt with the woman, who is described as having “mental issues,” in the past. It’s unclear if she’s facing any charges.

It’s also unclear if the neighbor will face charges.

An investigation is ongoing.
