Buffalo, NY – A 29-year-old man apparently shot his 21-year-old girlfriend to death late Tuesday night and then held police at bay for four hours with three young children in the house, before he shot and critically wounded himself, Buffalo police say.

The standoff, which occurred in the 300 block of Millicent Avenue, began just before 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, after neighbors heard shots and other loud noises coming from the house. The home is three blocks north of the Kensington Expressway, just west of Eggert Road.

“Police say that during the standoff, the boyfriend continued to threaten police that he would harm them and the kids in the house,” Buffalo police spokesman Michael J. DeGeorge said today.

Shortly before 3:30 a.m., after an approximately four-hour standoff, police heard what appeared to be another shot inside the home. More on Buffalo News
