MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WREG) — Police said two men, a father and son, were found dead inside a house in southwest Memphis after a standoff that lasted for hours Friday.
Police were called to a shooting on Heartland Lane near the Mississippi state line just after 3 p.m. Officers were told a man shot a male relative.
When police arrived, they found the suspect barricaded inside with his father and a 4-year-old girl.
Officers negotiated for the release of the little girl, who was eventually released unharmed. Her relationship to the men is unclear.
Hours later, police entered the home using a robot at first. They said they found two men unresponsive inside.
Both were pronounced dead. Police believe the suspect died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Police blockaded the neighborhood for hours during the incident, finally releasing information after 10 p.m.
Names of those involved have not been released by police.
