Standoff with Detroit police ends after 28-year-old surrenders

A 28-year-old man is in custody following a barricaded gunman situation on Detroit's east side.

Police initially responded to a home at 12600 Duchess Street and pushed bystanders and reporters back to a staging area more than a dozen houses away.

Police say the man surrendered after his girlfriend had escaped the house he was holed up in. 

It's unclear how many others were involved in the standoff.
