New Orleans—New Orleans Police spent several hours Wednesday trying to coax a woman armed with a gun out of her home.
The standoff began around 7:30 Wednesday night in the 600 block of Henry Clay in Uptown.
Swat Team members were called to the home when the woman's husband called to report she was waving a gun.
The unidentified man says when he left the home he heard several shots fired. That's when he called police.
Negotiators tried without success to make contact with the woman.
Four hours later officers stormed inside the home and discovered the woman had turned the gun on herself.
The woman had not yet been identified late Wednesday night.
