DETROIT – A woman with multiple weapons is barricaded in a home on Detroit’s west side, according to police.
Detroit police Chief James White said the woman is in her 30s and has a mental illness.
The situation began around 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday when police responded to a domestic violence situation.
Police said when officers arrived on the scene found two children inside the home with the woman and an adult man who had been stabbed.
A gunshot was fired inside the home, but White said no one was hit. Through negotiations, police were able to remove the man and the two children. The children were unharmed, according to police.
“She has several other weapons in the home and she is threatening suicide and at this point, we are going to wait her out and try and negotiate her out of the home,” White said.
The surrounding area is blocked off and neighbors are asked to avoid the area.
