Southfield — A woman allegedly shot and killed her husband Sunday afternoon and then barricaded herself in their Southfield home, police said. 

Emergency vehicles line up outside a home where a barricaded gunman is holed up after shooting her husband.

Police arrived at the 21000 block of Winchester at 4:12 p.m. Sunday. Officers found the victim on the kitchen floor, the Southfield Police Department said in a statement. That's north of 11 Mile and and east of Lahser.

Officers carried the man from the scene, but his gunshot wounds were fatal. His age was not immediately available Monday.

The woman had barricaded herself in her bedroom and remained there Sunday as police including from Southfield police and fire and the Michigan State Police Bomb Squad, tried to negotiate with her. 

At one point, a robot was sent into the house, but in the end, Southfield police officers pulled the woman out of the home. She's been taken to a hospital for treatment, pending her arraignment.
