HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Huntsville police say two people are dead after a standoff that forced officers to evacuate and close off part of a subdivision.
Al.com reports a SWAT team found a suspect and a woman both shot to death Saturday in what appears to be a murder-suicide. A second woman was also shot and taken to a hospital with serious injuries.
Huntsville police spokesman Harry Hobbs says two young children inside the home were unharmed.
Police were called to the Knox Creek subdivision at about 7:40 a.m. Saturday to what they believed was a domestic dispute. When police arrived, the suspect and others were barricaded inside the house. The standoff lasted several hours as officers evacuated residents within a block of the house and blocked several roads.
