BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Bentonville police say a woman is dead and a man injured after a standoff Sunday night.
Police Chief Jon Simpson says the standoff began at about 5:30 p.m. Sunday. Officers arrived at the scene after a woman inside the home called 911, seeking help.
Police say authorities attempted to negotiate with the man — at one point using a robot to bring a phone into the home.
Simpson says the man was transferred to a hospital with a gunshot wound and the woman was found shot to death inside the house.
No names have been released yet.
