According to authorities, two people have been shot -- a 24-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman -- near the intersection of Stoepel Street and McNichols Road, just west of Livernois Avenue. Police said the man has died from his injuries, but the woman is expected to survive.

Police said the suspect crashed a vehicle and fled on foot. A police dog tracked the suspect to a house in the area.

Residents were urged to avoid the area as police, social workers and negotiators worked to end the barricaded situation.

At about 4:30 p.m., Detroit police announced that the house had been searched and the suspected gunman was not inside.
