A family dispute led to the deadly shooting of a woman and a brief standoff between the suspect and Auburn Police in a West Hill neighborhood early Thursday morning.
Officers, responding to the 1000 block of U Street Northwest for a possible shooting at approximately 1:23 a.m., contacted a man who advised police that there was a family dispute inside his residence involving a man and a woman. The reporting party heard the sound of gunshots inside the residence and fled the residence, police said.
Officers surrounded the residence and made contact with a man who was still inside. The man refused to come out but eventually left the residence, and officers detained him. Officers made entry into the home and located the body of a deceased woman.
There are no other suspects in the incident at this time, police said.
The investigation into the incident is just beginning, police said, and there is no other information for release at this time.
